 About the Book 

Princes and paupers have been a theme of children’s literature since the beginnings of time. It seems there always has been, and always will be, rich folk and poor folk. And never the twain shall meet.In this delightful short story from Cathryn LeighMorePrinces and paupers have been a theme of children’s literature since the beginnings of time. It seems there always has been, and always will be, rich folk and poor folk. And never the twain shall meet.In this delightful short story from Cathryn Leigh we have a different perspective. A prince, one day to become king, who has dressed as a Pauper for the annual Harvest Pageant, and experiences, just for one day, how the other half lives.Like all good fairy-tales and fables there’s a moral behind the story, and one easily understood by readers of all ages.Traditional fairy tales can sometimes be dark and brooding, and overly-stretched, while modern day fairy tales are often written in a modern style that ill-fits the setting. In The Harvest Pageant Cathryn Leigh achieves a delightful balance, with exotic settings and names, classic fairy tale themes, and a sound moral base, all told in a single short story that’s just right for bed-time reading.
