This fractured fairy tale is the German children's book author Paul Maar. He has won numerous awards. It was a fun read with entertaining graphics and part of the storyline was about conquering fear of monsters. Strong female characters, wry humor, spoofs on traditional royalty roles, and crazy plot twists made me see why he is an award-winning author in Germany.
