The Duchess of Whimsy by Randall de Seve

(Subtitle: An Absolutely Delicious Fairy Tale)

The Duchess of Whimsy is extraordinary. The Earl of Norm is, well, ordinary. Can these two opposite be happy together?

What I thought: Wonderful--an original, nonsensical fairy tale. I think Fancy Nancy fans will like this one. The text is a bit long for a preschool story time but would be great for school age.
