About The Little Wooden Robot and the Log Princess by Tom Gauld.

The king and queen’s wish for a child is granted when a royal inventor and a clever witch give them a little wooden robot and an enchanted log princess. But there’s a catch: when the log princess sleeps, she turns back into an ordinary log and can only be woken up with magic words.

One day the princess is mistaken for a lumber and is carted away. Her robot brother must find a way to rescue her and safely return home! For fans of fairy tales and adventure.
