The Little Lame Prince and his Travelling Cloak
(often published under its shorter title
The Little Lame Prince)
is a story for children written
by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik
and first published in 1875.
In the story,
a young prince whose legs are paralysed due to a
childhood trauma is given a magical travelling cloak
by his fairy godmother; he uses this cloak to go on various
adventures, and develops great wisdom
and empathy in the process.
