The Witch Who Wanted to be a Princess

This is a very cute kids book by Lois G Grambling about a witch named Bella who wants to be a princess.  They have banned her from turning herself into a princess so she decides to marry a prince instead.  She worries she might be too ugly (especially with a wart on her nose) so she consults her magic mirror.

Her magic mirror tells her “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” so Bella reasons since she sees herself as beautiful then she is!

She answers a personal ad in the paper placed by a Prince Franklyn of Styne, who is none other than Frankenstein.

They fall in love, get married, and live happily ever-after (and so do their cats!).

Very lively and colorful illustrations made this a favorite with my kids.  Throw in the great message of self-contentment and internal beauty and this book is a winner with me too!

Lois G Grambling also writes cute books on dinosaurs as well, which are some of my son’s favorites.
