Princess Cora is like a lot of little girls. She thinks her school lessons are boring and she’s sick of running around in the dungeon gym! She wants a dog, but her parents won’t let her. One day, she asks her fairy god mother for a pet and ends up with poorly behaved crocodile! This princess has no problem climbing trees and getting dirty. Find out in this witty fairytale book if Cora ever gets her crazy pet situation. This is a perfect modern-day princess story that doesn’t involve a prince or a love story – just a girl and her pet.
