Shelves: dad, ellie
Dad is reading this book to Ellie at night and they are loving it. She has listened to the audio. We gave this book to Ellie in celebration of her devotion to the Lord.

This was such a precious book for Dad and Ellie to read together. They both rated it 5 stars. One of the characters in the book is Ellie and the prince gave her a gold coin that she wore around her neck. We had a gold coin with an angel on it that Yellow Grandma had given us so Ben put a small hole in the top of it and hung it on

This was the first Lamplighter Theatre radio drama that I listened to. I hesitantly borrowed it from my church's library after the librarian highly recommended it, thinking that it would be just another prince-kingom-fantasy-allegory, which I'm not really into.

Boy, was I wrong.

Not only was it not fantasy, it was an amazing moral story! It also included one of my favorite radio actors (Adam Wylie), who played as Hubert/Hugh. And I love Jess Harnell (Finnian Jones).

Lamplighter has definitely expan
I actually didn't read this. I listened to the dramatized edition put out by the Lamplighter Theatre.
Actually we are listening to the audio theatre--Great story! I love lamplighter books and their audio theatre is wonderful. Elijah especially loved this. I look forward to downloading another when there is a good sale. It is worth the expense.

Some Lamplighters can have the "preachy" overwhelm the story but this one is pretty good--an easy read, involving story, but still a good message.
FANTASTIC children's book. My kids and I were on the edge of our seats for the entire book. A memorable lesson on character building.

A spoiled prince is whisked to the country side to live as a poor boy in the care of a peasant woman. Will poverty teach him honor?
This is such a great story. Near the end I was really moved by the changes in him. We will read this again for sure.

Again, a Lamplighter Theater listen for us. Loved it. Boy loved it. Has already listened through twice.
Great family reading...
