The Prince's Diary
I have fallen in love with the most beautiful girl, but I don’t even know her name!
Young Prince Stephen has a problem: how to find the girl he calls Cinderella. He has seen her from afar, but figuring out how to meet her proves difficult. In this charming version of the Cinderella story, take a peek at the Prince’s personal diary as he tells the well-known story from his point of view.
In his diary, find out what the Prince was feeling when he first met Cinderella, and what he really thinks about her stepsisters! All your burning questions will be answered: Did Cinderella have a fairy godmother? Did the Prince really try a glass slipper on every girl in the kingdom? And most important, what really happened at the ball? In this twist on the familiar tale, the Prince tells it like it is, and you’ll be amazed by the real story.
Follow along with the Prince as he searches for his Cinderella, and discover a whole new way of looking at this classic fairy tale.
