A funny, feminist twist on the Cinderella fairy tale for fans of fractured fairy tales Princess Harriet Hamsterbone is not the kind of princess who enjoys fancy dresses or extravagant parties.

And where did she come from? The mystery leads to a not-so-wicked stepsister, an incontinent lizard, and a fairy''s spell that''s really more of a curse. Luckily, Harriet knows a thing or two about curses... Smart, funny, and filled with swashbuckling adventure, book five in the critically acclaimed Hamster Princess series is a hilariously re-told fairy tale for the modern age.
