Three princes go on a quest to the Heart of the World to save their drought-ravaged kingdom.

This beautifully illustrated, original fairytale is filled with romance, magic, and adventure and will appeal to readers of all ages.

“With magnificent paintings that flow like one perfect canvas, Sanderson creates a mystical, enchanting world...”
—School Library Journal

“The meticulous paintings depict a medieval fantasy world in loving detail…”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Written in plain yet stately prose, this is an original fairy tale about three brothers and their quest. The aging king has promised his throne to the son who can deliver the kingdom from a terrible drought by discovering the Heart of the World, which lies within the dangerous Enchanted Wood. Each of the brothers sets out on the journey, but—in true fairy tale style—only the youngest son is pure enough of heart not to swerve from his noble purpose. Is it love that brings the young prince to the Heart of the World and thus to the end of his kingdom’s troubles, or is it at last finding the magical place? This engaging story does bring magic, adventure, and a hint of romance to young readers… Sanderson’s art is exquisite—restrained in palette, naturalistic in style, and rich in tone.”
—Publishers Weekly
