Summary
When a bored Princess Patricia Priscilla makes her chambermaid switch identities with her so she can attend the village school, her attitude changes and she plans a new way to celebrate her sixteenth birthday
Summary
Clever, independent, and mightily bored, Princess Patricia Priscilla escapes the preparations for her upcoming 16th birthday bash in this wickedly funny original tale. Donning her chambermaid's simple, rough dress and calling herself "Pat," the princess poses as a peasant girl in order to attend the village school for a week. While the princess learns a lot more than just her lessons in class, her suitors -- all repellent -- prepare for the ball, where unfortunately she'll have to pick one of them to be her husband. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
