Then just before winter's first snowfall, a delegation from the lowlands arrive with exciting news. The king's priests have divined that her small village is the home of the future princess. In a year's time, the prince will come himself and chose his bride from among the girls of the village. The king's ministers set up an academy on the mountain, where every girl of age will be sent to learn the skills of a princess. But there is no way Miri can prepare herself for what lies in store.

This long-awaited follow-up to Newbery Honor winner Princess Academy hit the New York Times bestseller list in the first week of US publication. A rich and compelling fantasy about one girl's journey to discover where her home and heart truly belong in a divided world is reminiscent of the best writing by authors like Eva Ibbotson and Cornelia Funke. With a chance to study at the university and live at the Queen's Castle, Miri leaves village life and is thrust into the bustling chaos of the city. Her best friend, Britta, has been chosen by the Prince of Asland to be his bride, and the royal wedding is fast approaching. But helping Britta prepare for her future is not an easy task. When Miri discovers a secret plot against the royal court - which is motivated by good - she feels torn. Will she choose loyalty to the princess, or reform for the people? As Miri struggles to resolve this dilemma in her own mind, her heart is suffering: an old love comforts her; a new crush consumes her; she yearns for her homeland. Can Miri find her way in this new place, or will she be considered a traitor? The fate of the kingdom is at stake.

This lively chapter book combines the classic fun of a princess story with a modern sensibility and humor Princess Emma is not your typical princess.

When news breaks that dragons in the kingdom are falling ill, Emma resolves to solve the mystery, despite her family's urging to leave such problems to the Royal Council. With her best friend Rapunzel and some unexpected help, not to mention some very un-princess-like maneuvers, Emma just might manage to save her beloved dragons, and possibly even the whole kingdom.

Fantasy literature, often derided as superficial and escapist, is one of the most popular and enduring genres of fiction worldwide. It is also—perhaps surprisingly—thought-provoking, structurally complex, and relevant to contemporary society, as the essays in this volume attest. The scholars, teachers, and authors represented here offer their perspectives on this engaging genre. Within these pages, a reader will find a wealth of ideas to help teachers use these texts in the classroom, challenging students to read fantasy with a critical eye. They employ interdisciplinary, philosophical, and religious lenses, as well as Marxist and feminist critical theory, to help students unlock texts. The books discussed include epic fantasy by such authors as Tolkien and Le Guin, children’s fantasy by Beatrix Potter and Saint-Exupéry, modern fantasy by Rowling and Martin, and even fairy tales and comic books. The contributors offer provocations, questioning the texts and pushing the boundaries of meaning within the fantasy genre. And in doing so, they challenge readers themselves to ponder these tales more deeply. But through each of these chapters runs a profound love of the genre and a respect for those who produce such beautiful and moving stories. Furthermore, as with all the books in this series, this volume is informed by the tenets of critical pedagogy, and is focused on re-envisioning fantasy literature through the lens of social justice and empowerment. Prepare to be challenged and inspired as you read these explorations of a much-loved genre.
