Apples for the Princess

A Fairytale About Kindness and Honesty.

Authored by K. Sean Buvala
Illustrated by Michelle Buvala

The Values of Kindness and Honesty!
"Well as you say, so it is." Is this a warning or a blessing from of the old wizard that our young heroes encounter on the road to the castle, home of the very sick princess? Use this book, with its adaptation of a classic Grimm fairytale, to explore the values of honesty and kindness.

How should we treat others? Find out as three boys discover that it is important to treat all people with respect and courtesy. When they forget, frog-filled, pig-packed chaos ruins their great plans to bring the healing apples to the princess! Will any of them succeed on their journey?

This is a “read it with me!” book for younger children. For older independent readers, we think you'll find this book is best for those 8 years old and beyond.

Check the back of the book for information on free resources, too.


Language and words are used in this book in a manner differently from many books for kids. There's a balance of the fun style of a traditional oral storyteller and a casual written story. We invite you to engage with your children or students as you read this story together. For the youngest children, you may need to clarify words and provide definitions. But wait a moment! You may also be surprised to find that even young children will understand unique words such as “banish” by simply hearing the word repeated in context. Use this fun book in your "toolbox" of growing your students or children.
