High up in the tower, little Ruby lounged in bed. “My special day must be the best or else!” the princess said.

Princess Ruby is the most spoiled princess you could ever meet. And when it’s her birthday, there are so many presents that the palace literally bulges at the seams. But when the palace and gifts finally collapse on the poor king, the tiny tyrant realizes that she has overlooked the most precious thing of all.

Praise For…

Warburton’s predominantly pink images ... have the look of spun- sugar confections dreamed up by slightly batty pastry chef. Warburton’s gift for visual winks and nudges serves the story well, bringing lightness and humor to the message-heavy verse.
—Publishers Weekly

Bright candy colors and rhyming text characterize this tale.
