Princess Griselda was so beautiful that almost everyone she met fell head over heels in love with her. And that's not just a saying. They actually lost their heads.

In this wonderfully original fairy tale Isol takes on the dangers of narcissism. Griselda not only causes anyone who looks at her to lose his head -- she collects the lost heads, oblivious to the fact that everyone is terrified of looking at her. Eventually she runs out of companions, until she finally finds a prince so myopic that for a short while he is able to be with her (before the inevitable happens). But they are together long enough that at the end of nine months she has an extremely beautiful baby who, for the first time in Griselda's life, takes her out of herself -- unfortunately with the inevitable result.
