Dara’s Clever Trap

This is a great STEM story set in Cambodia about an engineering princess: Princess Dara falls in love with kind and clever Rith, and together they live happily planning and building wonderful houses, bridges, and temples. Meanwhile, the king’s four wicked ministers trick him into believing Prince Rith is a dangerous traitor, and he’s banished from the kingdom. But our resourceful princess will not stand for that! She uses her skills as a carpenter and engineer to outwit the minsters and bring her beloved husband home.

“Happily-ever-after with a STEM feminist twist: how very timely.” Kirkus Review
