Charlotte was a pink princess. She used to wear a pink frock and had a wardrobe full of pink clothes. However, Charlotte was really tired of pink as she was of being a princess. She wanted to wear red or green or purple clothes. She did not want to kiss toads to discover that they were blue princes. In fact she did not even like blue princes. Charlotte always asked herself why should not there be princesses plying the seas in search of adventures; or princesses who rescued princes from a fierce wolf’s claws; or princesses who hunted dragons or flew balloons.
