What makes a modern princess? Readers from Maury Elementary in Washington, D.C. say it takes a bad ass like our heroine in Gail Carson Levine's fairy tale "The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre." Our Newbery honor winner talks about her love of fairy tales and how the novel grew out of her passion to fight prejudice of all kinds. Actress Tessa Auberjonois is celebrity reader. Kitty Felde is host.
