4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book 1 Jan 2011
Bought this for my 3 year old who is obsessed with fairytale princesses, this along with Princess Grace is a colourful alternative to the stereotypical pink, delicate, frilly Disney-type princess. Recommend it for both boys and girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 30 Jun 2011
By Michele - Published on Amazon.com
We have read this many times, with my daughter participating by adding the oft repeated refrain "and a sparkly crown". Sometimes she counts the crowns. The pictures are engaging to the point she often starts conversations about them, and most importantly, during pretend playtime, my daughter never hesitates to rescue the prince.

5.0 out of 5 stars Princesses 14 Jun 2012
By Michmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book. My daughter has always been into trains and cars and digging in the dirt but she also loves everything princess. This book reminds her that there are all kinds of princesses and that girls can play with whatever they want and be whomever they want and they can still be a princess!

2.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love this book 10 April 2014
By KF - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I wanted a book for my 3 year old princess (and pink) loving daughter that showed the modern day "princess" as a strong, independent and confident girl who isn't waiting around to be saved by prince charming. This book does just that. My problem with this book is that it doesn't just say that princesses can wear all colors and not just pink, it sends the message that pink is bad (unfortunately my problem is really with just one line on one page). My daughter loves pink and I would never want her to be ashamed for liking what she likes or for who she is (a princess and pink loving independent, confident and intelligent girl). I am giving this book 2 stars because of its positive message about the diversity of modern day princesses, but wish it had a more inclusive message. I wanted to love this book. It was out of stock for 2 months, and I waited for it, but I will be returning this book to Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 yr old daughter's new favorite book 22 Jan 2014
By Erin Lincoln - Published on Amazon.com
This book was a gift for my daughter, and it has quickly become her favorite book. She fell into the princess craze, early, when one of her friends introduced her to Minnie Mouse, which led to other Disney Jr. Shows... As someone who grew up a tom-boy, with no interest in the color pink, it was hard for me to swallow the fact that my daughter prefers skirts and dresses, loves the color pink, and finds princesses fun.

This book is a great way to demonstrate to her that princesses aren't all that are seen in the Disney movies. It likens the idea that regular girls are princesses, and that it really doesn't matter what you do- you can be a princess and do whatever you want. And that is what I love about it.

What I don't like about it is that odd feeling I get after reading it to her that makes me feel like I'm forcing something. When I'm done reading the book, it feels to me like it's a "rage against the color pink" book- though I think it's the last sequence, "at the ball." Thing is, my daughter legitimately likes the color pink. This book makes me feel like pink is bad, or somehow associated with the "other" princesses who show up in disney. That there are the "pink" princesses and the "not pink" princesses.

Not that my daughter gets that. She likes seeing the girls doing stuff and wearing "sparkly crowns." But that feeling I get keeps me from giving it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars My princess loves it! 12 Dec 2011
By Melinda - Published on Amazon.com
She may only be 2 but I want my princess to know that she can still be a girl and know how to do more than just sing and wait on a prince to save her. While I am a huge Disney fan I hate the classic princess, these play baseball, build things and get dirty. Just like my Daddy raised me! If all the girls in may family were not to old for this they'd be getting it too!
