The princess who saved herself

Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage
With Greg Pak
May 24, 2020

Once upon a time there was a princess named Gloria Cheng Epstein Takahara de la Garza Champion who had a pet snake and ate a whole cake because there wasn’t anybody there to tell her what to do. Until the day the witch next door decided she didn’t like Gloria’s guitar playing . . .

A book that explodes the princess myth of a new generation of awesome girls. Based on the classic Jonathan Coulton song “The Princess Who Saved Herself.”
