From the captivating yarns of a Newfoundland lighthouse keeper come the enchanting tales of Princess June and her grand adventures. Princess June and the Shadow Pirates follows a young girl's desperate quest to save her kingdom from evil invaders. Displaying a unique and captivating style of illustration that showcases the rugged yet beautiful coastline of Newfoundland, this story jumps off the page with its vivid colors and design.

Douglas Hopkins, a native of Old Perlican (Trinity Bay, Newfoundland), created his first storybook characters at the age of seven. Princess June and the Shadow Pirates is the first in a series of adventure storybooks that capture the scenic beauty of Newfoundland and further a tradition of sharing tall tales.
