Princess Dembe - sole heir to the throne in the Beloved Land - is under threat when the evil Prince Damian vows he will be the most powerful King and take over the entire Kingdom. With little hope of the three fairies' potion working to restore King Rumba's weakening health, the Princess must act quickly to keep Prince Damian and his army out of their palace. But Prince Damian is ready to strike. Will Princess Dembe - and her friends - stop the foolish Prince from destroying her father and their beloved Kingdom before it's too late?
"Deborah Henry creates a world of magic, fairy tale, and lush fantasy, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez translated for kids. Wonderful and playful."
