Summary

“Boys and girls alike will appreciate the mix of classic and contemporary elements in this creepy, suspenseful middle-grade mystery” (The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books). Roddy Hall overhears his mother saying “Princess” is coming to visit. He’s excited—he’s always wanted a dog. But then he finds out that—ick—Princess is a girl and—yuck—she’ll be staying for a whole week. One night, Princess, Roddy, and his best friend, Jacob, notice a mysterious car pull up to an abandoned house. Could it be a burglar? Or worse yet, a ghost? Princess is determined to find out, and against his better judgment, Roddy goes along with her. They sneak out of the house to investigate—but will they be ready for what they might find?  Princess for a Week is a Society for School Librarians International Honor Book.

    Listeners of the audio are transported into a digitally charged environment where sound effects, music and song, voiceovers, and animated vocalizations of animals, by this author, are mixed and mastered by The Vision Recordings to produce a satisfying auditory experience. The leap into this virtual atmosphere is an anomaly, where the performance folktale can be performed both on stage, in the classroom or virtually with the use of puppets, and props. In a postmodern world where aspects of our culture are internet driven, it is critical that cultural ambassadors find innovative ways to keep oral storytelling alive, and challenge the dominant discourse of social media in the 21st Century.

    In Mahabharata Lord Krishna had also worshipped Lord Ganesh. They have become the role models to the whole world. Before the beginning of any work it is common to worship Lord Ganesh. There are many Holy hymns on Lord Ganesh. Lord Ganesh’s favorite food is modak. 
    He gets pleased if we offer Durva grass to him. He also loves red Hibiscus flower. He is called the vighnaharta because he wards off all the obstacles in our life. He is also called vighnaraja. There are infinite names to Lord Ganesh which we cannot explain. He ties a snake around his waist. 
    The vehicle of Lord Ganesh is mouse in Hindu culture. Lord Ganesh is worshipped all over India. His miracles have been described in all of the 18 Puranas. There are many forms of Lord Ganesh.
