Once upon a time, there was a princess who didn't need a man to rescue her from peril.
The royal little girl, who spends her time playing the electric guitar, is the protagonist of an unique, crowdfunded children's book called “The Princess Who Saved Herself.”
Author Greg Pak, who based the story on a Jonathan Coulton song, was overwhelmed by the popularity of his plot when it was first introduced.
He'd set his Kickstarter goal at just $15,000, only to receive more than $65,000 from no less than 1,700 backers.
Wondering what this princess has to offer? Per the book's Kickstarter:
[It tells] the story of an awesome kid who lives with her pet snake and plays rock 'n' roll all day to the huge annoyance of the classical guitarist witch who lives down the road. Hijinks, conflicts, and a fun reconciliation ensue, all showcasing determination, bravery, and understanding.
