A good family book, for while the 8 to 11's will enjoy it, the 6 and 7 year olds will enter into the fun. Wonderful nonsense flight that comes off. Teddy, a mere mortal boy, finds a key that lets him into the palace of the King who is giving the ball at which Cinderella meets the Prince. But the Prince and Cinderella are quite commonplace in comparison with the delightful, vain, greedy king with his amazing system for running all governmental matters. At Cabinet meetings, he and his ministers discuss the desserts which the Queen has made. Teddy, as Ambassador Extraordinary from the U.S.A. helps the King prepare for the Ball, helps him market for extra bananas, and then after the Ball goes adventuring to find the owner of the glass slipper. Delightful absurdities, full of humor and fantasy and imagination.
