Looking for a new and original fairy tale to add to your shelf? Pick this one. You will not be disappointed! It is the sweetest tale with the cutest illustrations and left me overfilled with happiness!— Allie
For years, the king and queen have longed for a child. Their wish is miraculously twice granted in the form of a little wooden robot and an enchanted princess, both of whom they raise lovingly. There's just one catch: every night when the princess falls asleep, she transforms into a log. She can only be woken with the magic words "Awake, little log, awake."
The two siblings are inseparable, until the day when the sleeping princess is mistaken for an ordinary log and carted off to the frozen North. Now it's up to her devoted brother to rescue her and return safely to the kingdom. A thrilling adventure ensues, featuring moonlit forests, helpful animals, mischievous pixies, a magic pudding, an old lady in a bottle, and finally, a tumultuous conclusion that will leave readers of all ages thoroughly satisfied.
In The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess, acclaimed cartoonist, award-winning graphic novelist, and New Yorker contributor Tom Gauld has created a brand-new fairy tale that manages to be both of the moment and utterly timeless.
