NEW EDITION!

A frustrated king flies into a rage and turns his mischievous daughters into oranges. The gruesome monsters Grim and Grunt decide they'd like to get their hands on the princesses, and bully their little brother, Grizzle-Tail, into stealing the girls. It seems like all is lost until an underdog hero named Pedro sets off to save the princesses — and maybe save Grizzle-Tail as well! This chapter-book retelling of a folktale from the Quechua people of South America encourages an anti-bullying message as Pedro and Grizzle-Tail form an unlikely alliance to help each other defeat their bullies and save the day. Immersive, full-color artwork by favorite Barefoot illustrator Sophie Fatus allows children who are just beginning to enjoy chapter books to grasp more advanced vocabulary and sentence structure.
