Princess Caroline is not the typical prim and proper perfect princess. She is resourceful, always asking questions and inclined to be bossy. She is sent to stay with the very proper Duchess Astrid to learn to behave as a proper princess should. Her education is interrupted when she is caught up in a plot by the wicked Duke Glacier to take over her father's kingdom. Accompanied by the brave and sensible Cat, with a capital C, Princess Caroline undertakes a perilous journey to warn her father before it is too late.
The story is a fantasy, full of humour and action. It is suitable for younger children as a 'read to me' book. Older readers will enjoy the quirky characters Caroline and Cat meet and the peculiar situations they find themselves in along the way.
