With no army, no forts, and no arsenal, how can the princess defend her country? Her wisdom testifies that the most heroic action does not win wars, but prevents them. Princess Mat Mat devises a plan that includes, as an unexpected ally, the moon.

"The Tiny Kingdom has no arsenal, no means of defense. What it does have is a canny princess who devises a plan that routs the army and gives the reader a glorious reading experience." —Publishers Weekly

"A tongue-in-cheek story of the triumph of common sense. . . . Bold, amusing dialog puts this beyond recognition as folklore and places it successfully in the realm of comic satire." Booklist
