The Princess and the Wizard Summary


The Princess and the Wizard by Julia Donaldson

"The princess may try seven times to escape
By changing her colour and changing her shape."

But each time Princess Eliza changes - into a blue fish, a yellow chick, a red fox or a black cat - the wicked wizard finds her and sets her another horrible task. Will this plucky princess be able to outwit him and escape back to the palace in time to cut her birthday cake?
