A story brought to you by our friends over at Dorktales Storytime Podcast
The Princess and the Pincushion
By Amy Thompson and Edited by Molly Murphy
The lonely Prince is fed up with the Queen and her court! Their snobby standards are keeping him from finding someone who cares about connection over social status. Enter Wilhemina, the rain-soaked and mud-covered girl who makes a mess of a first impression, but ultimately proves that true friendship is more than a popularity contest.
WHAT THIS RETELLING IS ABOUT: This story is about friendship and making connections with the people who see you and appreciate you for who you are. There is an opportunity for great conversations about popularity and how it feels to be excluded.
