The Rescue Princesses: The Secret Promise
Princess Emily is excited about her first Grand Ball, but she’d rather be on the zip wire in the castle grounds than trying on dresses. Her three friends feel the same, so they slip out after dinner. A zip wire in the dark is excellent fun! But things take a serious turn when the girls find a trapped deer in the forest. Who would do such an awful thing, and why?

What the Critics Said
“Glamour and guts are finely blended in this right royal adventure. Princess Emily is a modern day princess – and fiesty to boot. At a gathering of royals she and her new friends, all other young princesses, take a break from their fine dresses and good manners and search for something more fun. Soon the girls are on the trail of whoever is plotting to destroy the deer in Mistberg Forest. It’s a brave mission – and fun, too.”
“A winning combination of the traditional and the contemporary. The story begins with all the traditional elements of a princess story – there are beautiful dresses, jewels, friendships, balls and fairy tale castles – but it then develops into something more exciting … Its fast pace will maintain the interest of the beginner reader, and is just perfect for girls branching out into chapter books for the first time. The illustrations are simple but charming with a hint of Manga about them. This book is the first in a series and no doubt will be very popular: princesses and animals – what young girl could resist?”
