Princess Stormy lives in a semi-detached castle with her family and a Fool. When an unhappy neighboring kingdom decides to invade, Stormy must go on her quest, meeting giant Cats, Mermangels, Giggle Monkeys, a Gricklegrack, and Flying Lizards on the way. Oh, and she kills three princes. But that's by accident, and anyway it's their own fault . . .

Danbert Nobacon, singer, songwriter, comedian, and "freak music legend," was a founding member of the anarchist punk rock band Chumbawamba. He loves children and animals. This is his first book.

Alex Cox is better known for his filmmaking skills. He loves monsters.

"This is a beautiful book. The illustrations are wonderful. It definitely rocks! I ought to know" --IGGY POP

"3 Dead Princes follows the fairy tale narrative with personal challenges, serious battle preparation, and more brave moments than the movie Brave. But every time you think you have it all figured out, Nobacon throws a curve ball, forcing the reader to rethink what a fairy tale can be . . . while also posing a lot of subtle questions about society, culture, and evolution. . . . With Alex Cox's illustrations along to spice things up even more, it's a very enjoyable, and unorthodox, read." --Bookslut

"Parents looking for a book for a middle-grader would be hard pressed to find a more sophisticated yet accessible story. Yes, there is a bit of swearing in it, and yes, there are some fairly grown-up themes introduced, but as a springboard for sensible and informed discussion with youngsters about how we live and how we might live, it is hard to think of a better book. . . . Even as an adult reader, the story is interesting and intelligent enough for you to find it worth your while."-- New York Journal of Books
