Description

Demanding Princess Arabella is bored of living in the castle and decides to swap roles with Tom, the lowly shepherd boy, as she thinks his job seems much more fun. However, it isn't long before she is bored of this job too, and decides to play a trick on the townsfolk. "WOLF, WOLF!" she cries, sending the panicked villagers up the hill - only to find there is no wolf. "TROLL, TROLL!" Arabella later cries, giggling. Again, the townsfolk rush up the hill to her rescue, huffing and puffing - only to find there is no troll. So later, when the cry "DRAGON, DRAGON!" comes from Arabella, the townsfolk ignore her. But this time there really is a dragon… A new twist on a classic tale, this re-worked fairytale with a moral is the perfect way to broach the sensitive subject of telling the truth with young children.
