The Great Good Thing, by Roderick Townley
Sylvie has been a twelve-year-old princess for more than eighty years, ever since the book she lives in was first printed. She's the heroine and her story is exciting -- but it's always exciting in the same way. That's the trouble. When a new reader gazes down into Chapter One, Sylvie breaks an important rule for all storybook characters -- she looks at the Reader. Worse, she gets to know the Reader, a shy young girl named Claire. When Claire falls asleep with the book open, Sylvie enters her dreams and subconscious, where she achieves many good things, but the greatest goes far beyond even her imaginings.
