'Once upon a time there was a kingdom of beautiful colours. In the middle of it stood a cloud mountain, and from the top of the cloud mountain you looked down on a wonderful rainbow, shining green and blue and yellow.'
The King must go on a long journey, so asks his four sons to care for the kingdom of beautiful colours. But the youngest prince has his own ideas about how that should be done...
The Kingdom of Beautiful Colours is just one of seven wonderful tales in this collection by master storyteller Isabel Wyatt. The stories are full of ivory towers, great forests, golden lands and the star of the sea, which will inspire and enchant any child.
Suitable for children aged nine and up, this is a classic collection from the author of The Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book.
A new revised edition, previously published as The Book of Fairy Princes.
