The Battle for Princess Madeline
by Kirstin Pulioff
Published May 29, 2013
The Kingdom of Soron bustled with activity as preparations for the Fall Festival began. Lively merchants, hardworking farmers, and musicians eagerly awaited this event of harvest and joy. This year’s festival was even more important, as they celebrated Princess Madeline’s betrothal to her knight champion, Daniel.
Celebration quickly turns to disaster as Prince Paulsen returns with curious demands, either Princess Madeline will be his, or no ones. Rejection turns to obsession and battle is declared.
In a tense struggle to decide her future, Princess Madeline must choose where to put her trust… in the king’s tried and true plan, the wizard’s cryptic messages and maps, or her own sense of bravery. Follow Princess Madeline on this adventure as she battles evil in an attempt to create a future of love and magic.
Lessons Learned by Princess Madeline
Every story has a moral, a lesson, or a take home message. Here are three lessons to learn from Princess Madeline and her adventures.
1. Take care of your clothes…A dress can just be a dress, but sometimes they can be more. What started as a lavish gift from her father, turned into something she could have never imagined. When clothes are taken care of they can make an impression that spans generations.
2. Never take things from strangers…My parents taught me to never take candy from a stranger, and in this book, you quickly learn never to take gold from a stranger… even if she is the Princess. When greed outweighs fear, sometimes bad things can happen…
3. Keep a dream journal…Sometimes wisdom can come to you in the most unlikely of places, and you never know where it will lead. Make sure you are paying attention when your dreams guide you, and recognize the difference between fantasy and reality.
Of course, these are fun examples from the book, but there are more serous themes as well. This coming of age fairytale balances the fantasy with the reality- acknowledging the recklessness, spontaneity and struggles of growing up, against the realism of consequences, taking responsibility for your actions and learning to trust yourself.
