The Princess Who Had No Kingdom

The Princess Who Had No Kingdom by Ursula Jones, illustrated by Sarah Gibb (Orchard, £5.99 PB)

In this feel-good fairytale, a beautiful but impoverished girl wanders the land with her horse and cart, in search of a kingdom of her own. All the traditional boxes are ticked (mean queen, grand ball, happy ending) but Ursula Jones throws in a few modern updates (a jester mentions that his ‘contract ran out’). Still, it’s Sarah Gibb’s illustrations that really take your breath away; each page is dripping with ornate twirls and embellishments, with her silhouette work in particular stealing the show.
