Summary
Princess Hyacinth is bored and unhappy sitting in her palace every day because, unless she is weighed down by specially-made clothes, she will float away, but her days are made brighter when kite-flying Boy stops to say hello
Summary
Princess Hyacinth has an unusual problem: unless she wears special gowns with weights sewn into the hems and a large, extra-gem-laden crown, she floats. Inside, this means she spends a lot of time near the ceiling, but outdoors, she could float up, up, and away. One day, with a string tied securely around her ankle by the Balloon Man in the park, she floats far up but not away -- and has the time of her life swooshing through the sky! -- Description by Ellen Foreman
