In the course of a zippily entertaining half-hour, you get a lot of laughs, some impressive stage combat, and a nicely digestible moral-Richard Ouzounian, THE TORONTO STAR
The smartest Princess in the Kingdom (Or is she just arrogant?) and her brother, the strongest Prince in the Kingdom (Or is he just a bully?), have to save their Kingdom! Together they discover that the most powerful weapons are not swords, that dragons can be slain by a good bedtime story, and sometimes having a brother or sister isn’t such a yucky thing after all.
