From Our Editors

One big breath of wind sends the paper princess sailing into the air. The little girl who was making her is upset. She wasn’t finished. But the paper princess will finish herself. And away on the wind she travels -- over a meadow, river, carnival and a town. With a bit of luck, she just might make it home.
