Schmid, Susan Maupin. IF THE MAGIC FITS

Schmid, Susan Maupin.

IL 3-6, RL 4.0

Darling Dimple has heard the old stories of Princess Mariposa’s castle and how it was built by dragons tricked into being shackled on the tower and turned to stone by magic. But in her job as pot scrubber in the under-cellar of the castle, there’s no time to think about that. Soon Darling gets a new job as Under-presser (ironer!) for the Princess’s clothes in the upper-attic, and it’s there that she discovers an old closet full of 100 gorgeous dresses, all numbered and waiting to be tried on. Not only are they beautiful, but they are magical, and when Darling slips one on, she transforms into another woman in the castle. And that’s when her adventures begin. Filled with palace intrigue and conspiracy, imposters, weddings, magical canaries and mice, and of course, lots and lots of amazing dresses, this is a great start to a new series.
