What would you do if you lost your memory and had no one nearby to help you? What if you were enslaved and had to toil long at tasks that seemed meaningless to win your freedom? Or what if by acting heedlessly you had brought disaster on the one you loved most?

In The Wayfaring Princes, Prince Justin, Prince Felix, and Prince Brand of Lyngardia face and solve these challenges and so win their kingdoms.

(Ages 7–11 years)

Edith Lawrence

Edith Mary Lawrence (1890–1973) was a British artist known for her landscape and portrait paintings, her color linocuts, and her textile designs. She was born in Surrey, the youngest daughter of George Adams Lawrence, the owner of a grocery store in central London. She attended Queen's College, London and then studied at the Slade School of Art in London. At the Slade, Lawrence was a prize-winning student, gaining first-class certificates for painting and drawing. In 1917 she exhibited paintings at both the Royal Academy and with the New English Art Club. She also began teaching art at Runston Hill School. In 1922, Lawrence met the painter and linocut artist Claude Flight, and the two became lifelong companions. After living at his studio in St John's Wood for a while, the couple set up a studio in 1927 off Baker Street. Lawrence and Flight also wrote and illustrated three books for children.
