Description

In the Land of Hullabaloo, the King keeps his strong-minded daughter Sophronia confined to his castle high on Mount Solitary. Her mother is dead and the King fears his enemies will try to harm his daughter too. But Sophie longs to experience the outside world. Within the castle she has power over the King due to her magical ring. The King uses the Internet to find a wizard who can help him take it from her finger. But he hires the wrong wizard. The wizard turns her to ice and carries her his horrible son Mr Bobby and his greedy wife Barbaraba who run a Toy Shop. They lock her in the basement and make duplicates of her to sell all over the Kingdom. But she is stolen again, and carried by horse-drawn cart far over the Deadly Mountains to the Empire of the Blue-Bellied Black Snakes. Still frozen she is held captive along with many animals and birds which the evil Emperor uses for his own purposes. Placed on a pedestal in the Throne Room, surrounded by sllithery snakes and a moat full of crocodiles, the Princess discovers she is braver and cleverer than she thought. She can even talk to the animals, and befriends the captive Green Stree Snakes and Bilbies. By chance a strong young wizard learns of her fate from the old cart-horse, who is really a flying pony, descendent of Pegasus. Together they rescue the Princess and the captive animals. Flying across the Deadly Mountains they are brought down by a high wind and stranded in the dense forest. But a squadron of military owls arrive to assist them, and soon they are on their way back to the Castle. The Princess has learnt so much during this adventure and begs her father to allow her the freedom she longs for, so she can help other creatures in the Kingdom. An adventure story for children 8+ years, appealing especially to girls who want an exciting tale with a strong heroine, unusual animals and a technological twist.
