Miss Kelly is teaching her class about the old days in the opening scene of Princess In a Book by John M. Giles. She is telling her students an ancient mythical story that is set in a land known as Midland. It is about a princess, her mother, and father who are taken prisoners by an evil man. It happens on Christmas Day and they are held captive in a book. The evil wizard becomes the ruler of the land, but the people are unhappy with his selfish and wicked ways. The people want the Royal Family to rule the kingdom, but they are unable to find the king. The evil wizard has tucked the book away in the palace library, hidden among thousands of other books. Will the book be found and will the princess and her family be free from the spell of the evil wizard?

The story is enchanting and takes young readers on a fascinating trip where they will be able to discover whether the princess and her family will be set free from the book. I like the way the author knits the story of the princess together with that of Miss Kelly’s time with her students and their time inside the school library. It is fascinating to see how William, Shelby, Samantha, Jerome, Haden, Michael, Andy, and Tiffany fall into the book and find their way out with the help of Princess Sarah and her parents. The story is entertaining and will keep young readers glued to the pages till the very end.
