What is it that makes you happy? For little Princess Rosie, it was rainbows. Being a Princess, she could have anything she wanted. Toys, games, books. But she didn’t want any of those things. Possessions didn’t matter to her. Only rainbows could make her smile. "I wish I could have a rainbow all the time," Princess Rosie often sighed. Her parents, the King and Queen, tried everything they could think of to give Princess Rosie a rainbow, but with no success. Would the young Princess ever be happy? Maybe Becca, the wise old woman from the farthest village, could hold the secret to making Rosie smile?

Princess Rosie’s Rainbows is a stunningly illustrated new fairytale that offers young readers the precious lesson that true happiness doesn’t come from outward possessions, but from deep within us.
