Meg is a royal princess but doesn’t act like one. She hates embroidery and would rather romp around with Cam, the gardener boy. One day, her father locks her in a tower and announces that whichever prince can kill the witch, dragon, and bandits AND get Meg down from from the tower would get to marry Meg and get half the kingdom. Meg doesn’t even want to think about marriage, so she escapes from the tower and takes matters into her own hands.
The Runaway Princess is written by Kate Coombs. This story would appeal to people who like fairy tales, but with a twist. If you liked the movie, Tangled, I think you’d like this storyline. This book probably wouldn’t appeal to boys even though it is action-packed. This book is on a 5th grade reading level.
