Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, spends the
first years of her life under her aunt's guidance learning to
communicate with animals. As she grows up Ani develops the skills of
animal speech, but is never comfortable speaking with people, so when
her silver-tongued lady-in-waiting leads a mutiny during Ani's journey
to be married in a foreign land, Ani is helpless and cannot persuade
anyone to assist her. Becoming a goose girl for the king, Ani
eventually uses her own special, nearly magical powers to find her way
to her true destiny. Shannon Hale has woven an incredible, original and
magical tale of a girl who must find her own unusual talents before she
can become queen of the people she has made her own.

retelling of fairy tales
there is something about retelling of fairy tales that grabs my attention. although this is a young adult/children's book, as an adult, i still thoroughly enjoyed it. in fact, i enjoyed it to the point of staying up all night just to finish it.
Wonderful at any age!
I read this book while in my late 40's and I can't tell you how wonderful I found this story. The courageous female protagonist is the stuff of heroism. The plot and characters well done. The ending is excellent. This intriguing, interesting, yet G-rated book will delight females of any age!
I love this book. It is realistic but imaginative. Great book.
