Ferris, Jean._Once upon a Marigold._Harcourt, 2002
This is a different kind of fairy tale. Christian runs away
from a mysterious past and ends up living with a troll.
From the troll's cave he begins watching a princess through
a telescope and decides to send a pigeon with a message.
They soon begin communicating through p-mail (pigeon
mail..ha ha).  He runs away from the troll to work at the
castle where he gets involved in the problems of the Queen
trying to marry off the princess.  This 275 page book is
part love story, part fairy tale, part comedy.. just a lot
of fun.  NOTE: I purchased this book because I saw a lot of
students carrying it around school reading it.  Once it
takes off in your library, it will be very popular.
