Princess School Series
By Jane B. Mason and Sarah Hines Stephens
Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Rapunzel face friendship struggles, wacky families, wicked queens and stepmothers, and Frog Identification class during their first year of Princess School.
If the Shoe Fits
With her feet bare (those glass slippers don't fit) and her second-hand gown splattered with mud (thanks, evil stepsisters), Ella's first day of Princess School is off to a lousy start. If she can only find her fairy godmother before the first class begins, Ella is sure she'll put things right. But her FG is off at a convention and Ella is on her own — she'll have to get through the first weeks of Princess School without any bobbity-boo. Ella is terrified — until she meets silly Snow, spunky Rapunzel, and beautiful, sheltered Rose. Ella's new friends make Princess School a lot more interesting. But can they help Ella stand up to her horrible steps in time for the Coronation Ball?
Who's the Fairest?
The Maiden Games are fast approaching and Snow White is frozen with fear. It's bad enough that Princess School will be facing off against the nasty witches who attend the nearby Grimm School. But Snow's awful stepmother, Malodora, is one of the Grimm School's judges, and her icy stare alone is enough to make Snow quake. She's sure something terrible will happen. But if she doesn't participate, Snow will be letting down her whole school, including her best friends. Snow needs Rapunzel, Ella, and Rose more than ever. But what match are the princesses for a powerful witch like Malodora?
Let Down Your Hair
Madame Gothel, the witch who keeps Rapunzel locked in the tower, has discovered that she has been climbing out to attend Princess School. Furious, Madame Gothel is determined to keep Rapunzel from escaping again. Will Rapunzel lose her friends, Princess School, and her freedom all at once…or could there be a way to get the witch out of her hair for good?
Beauty is a Beast
Briar Rose is sick of everyone thinking she's perfect. Her parents won't stop doting, her guardian fairies are total pests, and even her teachers act like she can do no wrong. Her classmates at Princess School copy everything she does and, ugh, they keep calling her Beauty. Only Ella, Rapunzel, and Snow seem to like Rose for who she really is. Rose is fed up, and determined to prove that she's more than just a pretty face. She's forming a secret plan to do just that. But will she take it too far?
The Charm School for Boys is holding their annual jousting tournament and Rapunzel's friend Prince Val is a favorite to win the title...thanks to Rapunzel's coaching. Val can out-joust any prince. The question is, can he compete against a prince-ess? Rapunzel knows she has the skills to win, but must keep her identity a secret throughout the tournament. Can Ella, Snow, and Rose cover for her absence at Princess School? Will her friendship with Val survive the competition? And how will she ever fit her jousting helmet over all of that hair?
Apple-y Ever After
After years lost at sea, trapped by a curse, Snow White's father is back on shore. Snow is overjoyed, but the dwarves are wary — and it's soon apparent that the sopping sire hasn't washed off the curse completely. He has no idea who Snow White is! Snow and her friends will do anything to help her father remember the past, even if it means sneaking into the place that Snow fears most — Malodora’s enchanted castle.
Thorn in Her Side
Nobody is surprised when Rose lands the part of Princess Perfecta in the school play. At first Rose bristles at being cast as perfect yet again, but she soon throws herself into her role—especially her scenes opposite Nettle, who plays the Scary Fairy. The rest of the cast and crew is wary of sour little Nettle, but Rose thinks Nettle is a brilliant actor who always stays in character. So what if he gives Rose withering looks off stage, or acts like he'd like to curse her? It's almost as if Nettle is an evil fairy with a special grudge against Rose....
