Princess Isabella throws her crown out the window declaring that being a princess is boring. When she refuses to fetch her crown from the fishpond, her father, the king, puts his foot down. "Off to the pigsty with you!" he commands. Isabella couldn't be happier about her punishment because REAL girls get to peel onions, pick blackberries, and sometimes even sleep outside with the pigs. In the end, the king, appreciates his daughter's spunk and they leave the pigsty, hand in hand, bound for the castle with a new mutual respect; Color Illustrations;  pages.
