The Balderdash Saga: The Underground Princess (Lower Grade Fairytale Adventure for Kids 6-10)

From Mother Daughter Book Reviews:The Underground Princess is a fabulous and unique book that completely took me by surprise. It features exceptional writing, relatable characters, and a very clever plot with underlying messages about loyalty, courage, beauty, and love. I highly recommend this book to children ages 6 to 12 as a great read-aloud book or for those interested in reading something with a touch of macabre. This one is definitely a candidate for a Hidden Gem Award by MDBR in the future!”

Not all fairytales take place in rolling hills or along sparkling beaches. Some happen right below our very feet like the corpses they are….

Evolved Publishing presents J.W. Zulauf’s debut novel, the first in The Balderdash Saga, a series of lower grade fairytales with a slightly dark edge. [DRM-Free]

The Underground Princess by J.W. Zulauf, with Illustrations by Luke Spooner

Princess Scarlet is on a journey to find true love, but a malevolent force, Maleer, is in the process of dethroning her father, King Hurlock. Maleer intends to rule the underground kingdom of Balderdash, build an army, and break through the ground to invade the land of the living.

As Scarlet runs out of options to save those that matter most, she is forced to make decisions that will determine the fate of her entire kingdom.


Meet many friends, and a couple foes, on your visit to Balderdash. Whether you’re searching for true love with Princess Scarlet, or fighting for honor with Roland, the pirate knight, there is something for every reader within this coffin tale.
