A Tale of the Wide-Awake Princess
With the help of family and friends, Annie and Liam’s wedding day looks as if it’s going to be perfect until everything starts to go wrong. Liam’s father doesn’t show up, nor do the magic-wielding guests. Members of the wedding party come down with strange afflictions, Annie’s gown is ruined, a storm floods the castle grounds, and an unknown king lays seige to the castle. Queen Karolina decides that they need the help of her fairy godmother, Moonbeam, but a pea-soup fog keeps the messengers from leaving. Only Annie and Liam can get past the magical fog to find Moonbeam, but even after they find her, it’s up to them to discover who cast the spells that ruined the wedding, and why the unknown king wants to conquer Treecrest.

I read this book out loud to my girls at bedtime. They got really into it and wanted to discuss what happened every night when we stopped reading. It’s a really cute book that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Annie and Liam’s wedding day turns into a disaster, so they postpone it and go in search of a powerful fairy to help them get rid an invading army. I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, but that didn’t hinder my enjoyment of this book, and it didn’t give my kids any confusion either. It’s a sweet, well thought out story that kids will like. When I finished reading the last page, my seven year old sighed in satisfaction and said that it was the sweetest book ever.
If you haven’t read any books in this series, I would start at the beginning with The Wide Awake Princess and work your way through.
