The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors puts a faerie tale spin on the age-old children's game. It's a story about Princess Penelope, a young girl who seemingly had everything a girl could want, with only one problem: she could NOT make decisions on her own! So when her father the King decides it's time for Penelope to choose a husband from the many young Princes who travel to the kingdom to seek her hand, her indecision strikes again! Word spreads throughout the kingdom and ultimately reaches the ears of three evil troll brothers who live in the deep dark forest. They devise a plan to kidnap Princess Penelope and hold her as their slave until the day when she can finally choose her Prince husband...will it be mighty Prince George, or maybe the wealthy Prince Stephen, or maybe the handsome and well-dressed Prince David? Will she be able to choose in time for her true love to rescue her, or will she remain in the evil clutches of the 3 troll brothers forever? The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors is the first volume in the children's series entitled Stories About Growing Up by author Dr. Bill Dispoto and illustrated by Jenay Elder. The series seeks to harness the infinite power of a child's imagination...providing stories of fantasy and fiction to impart lessons about growing up teaching children the value of kindness, honesty, respect and toleration.
