But when she sets out through the forest to see the castle--the heart of the whole kingdom--she must rely on kindness and courage to outwit bandits, rescue a girl and help a prince.This tale of a young woman’s adventure is told with vivid language and illustrated with classic photography. A Handful of Gold is a read-aloud story for elementary-aged children.What is a “new” fairy tale?Too often in classic fairy tales, women are valued for their beauty, they must be rescued by princes, and a girl’s highest aspiration is to attract the eye of the prince.A Handful of Gold was inspired by classic tales but it reveals a fresh, spunky character who needs neither her beauty nor a prince to bravely battle bandits. Audrey is an unlikely heroine who is always willing to share, to help and to have an adventure.
