A hilarious Hungarian classic children’s story, about true love, friendship and what happens when a witch turns your fiancé into a duck
Princess Arnica is so sweet and gentle that when she smiles even wolves and bears forget their fierceness. Everyone loves her, but she loves only Poor Johnny. Luckily, he loves her too, and even more luckily Arnica has a very sensible king for a father, who is happy for her to marry whomever her heart desires. So, no problem then?
Well, maybe just one – The Witch with a Hundred Faces has cast a spell on Arnica and Johnny which means that one of them must always be a duck, and the other human! Only the Seven-Headed Fairy can help them, but will they be able to find her in time?
This is a hilarious classic children's tale about true love, friendship and, of course, what happens when your fiancé is turned into a duck.
