Regal Academy Vol. 1 & 2: “A School for Fairy Tales” & “The First Ball”
Based on the hit Nickelodeon show! Everyone knows the great fairy tale heroes, but what people aren’t familiar with is their other life-changing adventure: getting old. To pass their stories onto future generations, they joined together and built a school called Regal Academy. Now, their descendants must decide whether they’re going to ride the coattails of their famous grandparents or set off on adventures of their own.
At the center of it all is Rose Cinderella, an ordinary girl from Earth who learns of her extraordinary heritage. She’s joined by Travis Beast, the grandson of the nobleman-turned-monster-turned-gym-teacher; Astoria Rapunzel, whose long hair she has certainly inherited; and Joy LeFrog, whose grandfather was The Frog Prince and just happens to be Regal Academy’s headmaster.
