"The beast had swallowed the golden fruit in one gulp. And now something odd was happening to the monster."

The Jewel Kingdom #1-4 - Jahnna N. Malcolm

This book was the first four books in the series. Each story focused on one of the four princesses in the Jewel Kingdom. The stories were cute and had a message about being kind, brave, understanding, etc. My girls and I really enjoyed the stories. They are a quick read, each story only about 50 pages. Really good series for girls! Looking forward to finding the rest of the series...only problem is they are out of print!
