       Additional Information  
      Synopsis Once upon a time, in a tiny kingdom called New Tinsley, a young princess named Mabelrose lived in a small castle with her loving parents. Like so many other fairy tale princesses before her, Mabelrose was a kindhearted young girl who was well-loved by everyone.

    But unlike all other princesses, she did not posses the charming beauty and grace the rest had in abundance. She did not have hair as black as ebony or skin as white as snow. Instead, her hair was a dull muddy brown in color and her face was full of freckles.

    Even so, Mabelrose was a very special girl. Despite her unglamorous appearance and her awkwardness, she was quick on her feet and she was very smart. Of all the other princesses that have come and gone, it is she who will prove to be perhaps the best of them all.

    Captured by an evil dragon, she does what no other princess ever attempted in fairy tale history: she escapes all by herself! Her brave flight from the dragon's black fortress would be but the beginning of a long and exciting adventure.

    It is an epic journey that will test her strength, her courage and her love to its limits; a quest which will take her to many strange lands. Along the way, she would meet many enemies, make many more friends, and finally find true love. It is a story of a brave and resourceful young princess and her journey to find her home.
