by Gail Carson Levine
The beloved Newbery Honor-winning story about a defiant and unforgettable heroine.
At her birth, Ella of Frell receives a foolish fairy's gift—the “gift” of obedience. Ella must obey any order, whether it's to hop on one foot for a day and a half, or to chop off her own head! But strong-willed Ella does not accept her fate. Against a bold backdrop of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella goes on a quest to break the curse forever.
Gail Carson Levine's first book for children, Ella Enchanted, was a Newbery Honor Book. Gail and her husband David live in a two-centuries-old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley of New York State. You can visit her online at www.gailcarsonlevinebooks.com.
