The Princess Plays are two charming plays from the author of the immensely popular Lion and Mouse Stories. They include: The Princess and The Princess is about Popplepea, a poor, polite princess, and Twinkleberry, a rich, rude princess. They meet on a narrow mountain path, and neither will step aside to let the other one pass. Will a riddle provided by the Royal Wise Person prove who is the real princess? The Lost Half-Hour is about Bobo, a simple fellow who cheerfully endures teasing at the hands of his “friends” who send him on a quest to find a lost half-hour, naturally assuming that he will fail. Bobo takes his quest seriously and amazes everyone when he returns with several lost items.
