Princess Hyacinth: the Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated by Florence Parry Heide
Princess Hyacinth has a big, big problem! She isn’t trapped in a tower waiting to be rescued by a brave knight, or sleeping until true love’s kiss…. she floats! In order to make sure she doesn’t float away the princess has golden weights in the hems of her clothes and the crown she wears has the heaviest jewels in the kingdom. (Hmm, I would like this problem hehe!!) Floating in the house is one thing, but Hyacinth can’t go outside and play with the other kids because there is no roof to stop her from floating. Disaster strikes one day when Hyacinth goes outside and decides to float on a string with a bunch of balloons. Check this book out to find out if Hyacinth will be saved or if she will float forever. This is a cute, fun read for any girl who loves princesses! The illustrations are very charming as well.
