"Your beauty should come from within you the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit." 1 Peter 3:4 (International children's Bible)
Princess Bella won't go anywhere without her bright red velvet hat, which covers her head all the way down to her royal chin! Her highness's subjects are worried that something terrible is wrong with their dear princess, and her father, the king, is at his wits' end in trying to get her to leave the red velvet hat behind. Pretty white ponies, the most beautiful bonnets, even clever plans nothing seems to work. Why on earth is Princess Bella so determined not to be seen without her ridiculous hat?
T. Davis Bunn's charming tale and Doreen Gay-Kassel's enchanting colored-pencil illustrations delightfully teach children the value of true beauty, the kind that comes only from deep inside.
