A Spanish Fairy Tale

This month's digital wallpaper is inspired by a tale called Princess Honeysuckle and the Bird of a Hundred Feathers, selected from a book I picked up recently called Spanish Fairy Tales, published by Hamlyn in 1973.

I don't think 100 feathers are very many for any bird, though it is mentioned that each feather is a different colour.

Key points:

Princess Honeysuckle is unwell.

There is a quest to fetch the bird.

Princess is healed but the price for healing is herself.

She travels to a castle owned by a frog who is in charge of the bird.

Princess gets out of marrying the frog (enchanted King) through cleverness and a magic pebble given to her by a fairy called Estara.

Princess marries bird (who is an enchanted prince).
