The cook, not knowing that this fish on the floor is really the princess, picks it up and chips its head off for dinner. This story was really well written. The element of surprise at the end was perfectly executed and we really got a great feel for the members of the princess's family and the royal palace. The description of the food at the final meal was really great and made the reader feel as if they were really there. This is a job well done. Thanks, Erica Broome...
