Kingdom, and the Blue Ice Crystal has the power to protect the kingdom from all harm. The wicked Spellbinder steals the Crystal and threatens to cast spells on her kingdom and the adjoining Ruby, Emerald and Sapphire kingdoms. Chief True Blue is the finest scout and tracker in the land, and his Siberian Husky, Sasha, are called in to capture the spellbinder and retrieve the Blue Ice Crystal.

The Wicked Spellbinder creates dangerous and perilous spellbinding situations in the path of the intrepid chief and his courageous Husky assistant.

There are many comic situations that the chief and Sasha encounter on their journey. There are the Ruby villagers, who are under the spellbinderís spell and can only talk and sing in animal voices; the Emerald villagers, who are under his spell and can only walk backward; and the Sapphire villagers, who form the human rattlesnake chain.

   The Twelve Outrageous Dancing Princesses started out as a play that was performed many times over the years in several theatres with many young performers for large appreciative audiences.

   In book form it is now the first in the series of "Not So Grim Faerie Tales" by Lee Green Pope.  Each tale is told with humor, surprising twists and turns and delightful characters.

   "Outrageous" tells the story of a king who had 12 beautiful daughters who loved to dance.  The king would only allow them to go out dancing on Saturday night because they danced so much they wore out their slippers, but the princesses said that was not enough.

Every night the king personally locked all the windows and doors but the princesses had found a secret way to get out of the palace.  So every night they went out dancing and every morning there were 12 pairs of worn out slippers.  Everyone called it 'The Mystery of The Worn Out Slippers.'The king sent out a proclamation that said that if any prince solved The Mystery of The Worn Out Slippers, he would be allowed to choose one of the twelve dancing princesses for his bride, but if he failed he would be sentenced to a mysterious punishment.

   A handsome, young commoner named Robyn Wood of Sherwood Forest Apartments came to the king and made him an offer he could not refuse.

   A weird old man who was really a wizard returned Robyn's kindness by telling him how to solve the mystery.

   Robyn meets the twelve princesses Esmeralda, Delphine, Jasmine, Lucinda, Mimi, Flora, Teresita, Valerie, Willow, Rosalind, Zoe and Celeste.  He then sets out to solve the Mystery of The Worn Out Slippers and to win the hand of the beautiful Celeste.
