Summary

The acclaimed Marigold series in one volume. “A mixture of fantasy, romance, comedy, and coming-of-age . . . and it’s all great fun.” —School Library Journal   Once upon a Marigold, a fairy tale turned upside down, inside out, and completely over the top! Join Christian and Marigold through their one-of-a-kind adventures in this trilogy of tales that’s part comedy, part love story, part everything-but-the-kitchen-sink.   With echoes of William Goldman’s modern classic The Princess Bride, Jean Ferris’s hilarious parody of “Once upon a time . . .” overflows with oddball characters and sage observations to create a happily-ever-after that’s just the beginning.  Once Upon a Marigold was named an ALA Notable Children’s Book, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and a New York Public Library 100 Books for Reading and Sharing title.  Praise for the Marigold series   “In a gratifying fantasy that contains elements of classic fairy tales, Ferris breathes new life into archetypal characters by adding unexpected and often humorous dimensions to their personalities.” —Publishers Weekly   “Cold indeed is the heart not made warm by this bubbly fairy-tale romance.” —Kirkus Reviews    “Ferris leisurely combines elements of adventure, fantasy, romance, and humor.” —Booklist    “An upbeat fairy-tale adventure.” —School Library Journal
