When Rosalie, a poor but bright girl, turns up on the doorstep of his ramshackle castle, the Baron allows her to stay in exchange for tending his garden and cleaning up after his spoiled daughter, Kate. Rosalie loves flowers and is willing to work hard, but she also has a secret: a collection of magical seeds. Soon the garden is blooming again, and the Baron's old servant teaches Rosalie to read and write, although the Baron and Kate have never bothered to learn to read or write more than their names.

Prince Valor falls in love with Rosalie and her garden, but the Baron hopes a marriage between Kate and the Prince will restore his riches. Much to the prince's shock, Kate reveals that she's never learned to read or write. The Baron is embarrassed, but instead of punishing his lazy daughter, he banishes the innocent Rosalie. Rosalie finds herself imprisoned by an evil forest witch. Prince Valor is determined to save her, but Rosalie herself will have to use her smarts and a few more enchanted flowers to complete the rescue mission.

In The Prince and the Flowers, a fun cast of original fairy tale characters teaches children an important lesson: learning to read and write and hard work bring greater happiness than riches or royal titles.

Author Biography

Thomas R. Ryan lives on the West Coast with his family. At ninety one years old, he still works full time as a real estate lawyer. He wrote The Prince and the Flowers for his grandchildren, with the hope of reminding all children of the importance of learning to read and write and to use love and kindness in all they do.
