Unfortunately, the king forgot without intending to forget; and so the chance fell upon the Princess Makemnoit, which was awkward. For the princess was the king's own sister; and he ought not to have forgotten her. But she had made herself so disagreeable to the old king, their father, that he had forgotten her in making his will; and so it was no wonder that her brother forgot her in writing his invitations. But poor relations don't do anything to keep you in mind of them.

Librivox recording of The Light Princess, by George MacDonald. Read by Laura Fox. Plenty of princesses have been cursed by wicked witches, but the curse placed on this princess by her evil aunt is an unusual one: it removes all the princess's gravity. What can break the curse before the princess floats away? Perhaps the best thing for her would be to fall in love, but how a person with no gravity can fall in anything is just the problem. summary by LauraFox).
The Light Princess presents an unusual twist on the fairy tale genre. The strange curse placed on the baby princess in this tale prevents the child from having any gravity. The princess must be kept from floating away by a rope that moors her to the ground like a human balloon. Somehow she must find a way to fall in love to break the spell. A wonderful spin on the Sleeping Beauty myth.
The Light Princess is a Scottish fairy tale by George MacDonald. It was published in 1864.

An animated version was released in 1978.
The Light Princess book. George MacDonald’s masterful teaching on the subject of sacrificial love is delivered eloquently in the events and characters of this engaging The Light Princess is a short story that is warm and humorous, with a surprisingly poignant conclusion. A princess doomed by a witch to lose her gravity results in a silly heroine that has neither physical nor spiritual weight.
