Magic was banished from Princess Adela’s kingdom many years ago. But until she went to Hortensia’s garden party, she had no explanation for why all Hortensia’s beautiful flowers were still in full bloom in October. Or why a magpie was stealing jewelry and was talking to her! In the book Garden Princess, Princess Adela discovers that the attractive girls that were invited to the parties were turned into beautiful flowers—by magic! The handsome young men were turned into servants, and, a magpie! Princess Adela herself was turned into a dandelion weed. You will need to read the story to find out the exciting way she was set free from the magic spell!
