It’s Princess Florrie’s birthday. She is tired of all the usual entertainment – jugglers, jesters and acrobats and wants something a little unusual for her party. Something like a dreadful dragon. The rest of the palace is convinced he’s too dreadful, but Princess Florrie likes a challenge so she decides to write him a letter!
Vrombaut creates a vibrant fairytale setting for the feisty Florrie to spread her wings and crush a few stereotypes along the way. Junior
