Evolved Publishing presents the first book in the "Tales from Upon A. Time" series by Falcon Storm. This lower grade adventure is perfect for kids 7-11 years old, though kids a little younger are sure to like it too.
High up in the tallest tower of the purplest castle in the Kingdom by the Sea, Princess Lavender awaits rescue. Desperate as she may be, only the most dashing, well dressed, properly mannered prince will do. Oh, and he must stand exactly four and three-quarters inches taller than her. A princess has got to have standards, after all.

When, finally, one such prince comes to her castle—not to rescue her, but her younger sister—Lavender refuses to be ignored. Instead of waiting for the next suitor to come along, she devises a plan to put herself in danger, thus forcing the upstart prince to forget her sister and rescue her instead.

Well accustomed to getting her way, there is only one thing, unfortunately, that this princess can’t control—her luck. When her plans go awry, putting her in very real danger, will she allow the prince to rescue her as he sees fit? Will he even want to try?

And will anyone be able to find a way to rescue Lavender from her persnickety ways once and for all? Find out in this comedic tale of princes, dragons, and dreams that just may come true.
And be sure to check out the second book in this great series, "Natalie the Not-so-Nasty," now available.

    Fun and unexpected story

    I am not the target audience of this book but I enjoyed it immensely. The Persnickety Princess is the story of Princess Lavender who wished for the perfect prince. She had been waiting for so long that she became desperate when a prince came to her purple castle. He was there to save her younger sister instead. Since she didn't want to wait anymore, she put herself in trouble by going through the journey in the forest. Princess Lavender was what you call bossy, a bit selfish (well maybe a lot) and perfectionist. She didn't even care about her sister that were in danger. She was annoyed that the one saving her each time was the prince's squire. Dave the "squire" was the one becoming knight-in-shining-armor for Lavender. I absolutely love Princess Petunia. She was the "self-rescuing princess" and a lot of fun and adventure. I really love this book with all of the humorous event. I really recommend this book for anyone who love to read something light and fun. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
