From the jacket flap: "When Princess Alexandra Augusta Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne is born in the kingdom of Phantasmorania, excitement is high: for everyone knows that the seventh daughter of a king is the most beautiful and gifted of all. A splendid christening is arranged, and all the fairy godmothers are invited to present their gifts. Everything seems to be going smoothly until the fairy Crustacea suddenly arrives, with an unusual and not altogether welcome gift : a spell that the princess should be 'ordinary'. And the spell works . . . Princess Amy grows up to be so ordinary that she passes almost unnoticed by the royal people . . . But she soon realises that drastic action must be taken if she is to avoid being married to a dreary prince."
