Summary

Summary

Princess Miserella is beautiful on the outside, ugly on the inside. Plain Jane is just the opposite. When a slightly muddled Good Fairy takes a hand, things get put right in a most unexpected way. Light, bright twist on a romantic tale.--Kirkus Reviews. One- and three-color illustrations.
