The Little Lame Prince

Folk Tales

This is a touching coming-of-age story of a young prince who becomes lame on the way to his christening after he is dropped by a careless nurse. Later, the death of his parents leaves him at the mercy of his cruel uncle who keeps him hidden away in an isolated tower. However, a strange turn of events brings hope and love to the lonely boy.

Note: The Little Lame Prince is a wonderful folk tale originally written in the early 1900’s. We are glad to see this title back in print, however many copies of The Little Lame Prince also include several other stories by Dinah Craik (Mulock), which we do not recommend. To avoid confusion, our copy contains only the story of The Little Lame Prince. If you choose to use a different copy make sure to omit the remaining stories: The Invisible Prince, Prince Cherry, The Prince with the Nose, The Frog-Prince, and Clever Alice.
