A funny and entertaining sequel to Sally Watson's early book "Magic at Wychwood." Princess Elaine is slightly older but no more like a proper princess than she ever was. Her family despairs of finding a husband for her, but Elaine wants none of that. She prefers magic and adventures, and still can't manage to faint, which she thinks is a silly thing to do anyway. Unfortunately her magic never comes out quite as she intends.
