After years of being childless, the king and queen finally welcome a beautiful daughter into the world. But at the young princess’s christening, the king’s wicked sister curses the girl to a life without gravity. Doomed to float above the ground, unable to bring her feet to earth, the princess grows up unlike any other child. Inspired by “Sleeping Beauty,” The Light Princess is George MacDonald’s “lightest” fairy tale, indulging in skillful wordplay and unrepentant puns—the kind of story made to charm children and delight adults.
