This is a story about a king who is worried because his daughter has no friends. When asked to go to a party, she spends the evening at the barn! Everybody thinks she is strange! Are cows such good company that she would give up going to parties? The king decides that he will have all the young men come to see if one of them can win her heart. Will his plan work or will she be destined to spend her years with ....the cows?! This book would go well with a Fairy Tale unit. You could use this as a springboard for a creative writing assignment. I have included writing prompts.
