The Princess and the Admiral Rating:

When a fleet of warships attacks the Tiny Kingdom, a clever young princess uses ingenuity to preserve her kingdom's one hundred years of peace.

"Suggested by a 13th century incident involving Vietnam and the Imperial Navy of Kublai Khan, the neatly pointed fable is graced with touches of humor." --Kirkus Reviews

"When the Tiny Kingdom's celebration of one hundred years of peace is interrupted by the report of approaching warships, the wits of its ruler Princess Mat Mat and the wisdom of her astrologer more than compensate for the absence of weapons . . . But when the Princess' advisors speak of beheading the admiral she reminds them that "revenge is not our way" and sends the would-be conquerors home on water buffalo with guides and provisions." -- Kirkus Reviews
