    1. M. Jean Craig Barbara Cooney Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Donkey Prince book, this is one of the most wanted M. Jean Craig Barbara Cooney author readers around the world.

    2. A gently told and illustrated fairy tale that will suit kids who don't like to see anyone eaten, axed, beheaded, thrown, chased, etc. Also it was a pleasant change to see a fairy tale romance based on on personality and mutual interest rather than looks and wealth.

    3. A King and Queen who can have no children ask a wizard for help but when the King pays him he substitutes lead pieces for some of the gold.

Although the pages were not numbered, there are forty-three in the book. Generally, the text c [...]

    6. I read this book in elementary school and still remember it for some reason. I think the name was interesting and the story was memorable enough to talk about it 25 years later almost. HA! A must read for every elementary schooler from one who read it.

    7. This tale is a little bit of a twist on the Beauty and the Beast tale. If your love is true, looks are truly not important.
