    I need your help. I'm trying to track down a picture book I vaguely remember but can't recall the title of. It was a fairy tale genre but the distinctive thing about the story were the 7 palaces the characters visited each made out of a different material eg glass, china, silver etc. I know this is a long shot and not much information to go on but it might jog someone's memory. Thanks.

    There is one about a princess that is kidnapped by wicked wizard and made to clean dishes, mend socks, so on so forth until she sabotages his book of magic spells by turning herself into a piece of paper.

    i can do the wicked wizard voice for you, if you like?

    I could tell you the story better except that, me and my kids, we were more interested in doing the wicked wizard evil cackles, and maybe were not paying attention to other literary elements such as plot, character, and setting.

    Your lessons sounded like fun Nelly. No help finding my 7 palaces though :-(
