The Golden Rule is a magical tale of an Angel who drops from Heaven with one wing. To earn a second wing, Angel must do a good deed.  The problem? No one can see her.  Not Princess who looks down on Peasant, or Baby Dragon with the tiny roar, or Prince who would rather dance than fight, or Jester with the bad jokes, or Uncle Wizard, who rules an unhappy kingdom.

Angel watches what makes them happy, and begins to create a ‘Golden Rule’ about getting along. ‘Treat others as you want to be treated.’ But Uncle Wizard says they are only words. And words without actions are just words.  Suddenly, Prince leads them in a happy dance, and ‘The Golden Rule’ words come to life. Angel offers to be the Golden Rule Ambassador, and her second wing begins to grow. Soon, Angel flies ‘The Golden Rule’ around the world so everyone on Earth can live, ‘Happily Ever After.’  This fully illustrated picture book is perfect for children ages 4-8.
