Plain Jane has a heart of gold -- but her face is as homely as her nose is long. Princess Miserella, on the other hand, is a beautiful princess with a heart of stone. In this droll twist on the classic fairytale, the kiss-bestowing prince learns that beauty is indeed only skin deep.

"Yolen pokes fun at the patterned Sleeping-princess story in a tale that''s written with brisk simplicity and humor...it is amusing, it has plenty of action, and it''s easy to read". -- Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books "A light, bright twist on the romantic tale". -- Kirkus Reviews
