Format: Paperback
In our class, we have been looking at stories of princesses and this one is great!
It's a really funny story because Princess Smartypants is an extraordinary princess.
She doesn't do normal princess things, in fact she has a really cool motorbike. She is so wild!
The problem is Princess Smartypants does not want to get married so she puts her princes to test. Read the book to find out what they are!
Read to the end because you are in for a big surprise!

Format: Paperback
This delightful story is a must for little girls who are brought up on a diet of princesses ever grateful to handsome princes for rescuing them from a life of nothingness. This Princess has her own identity, her own agenda, and an independant outlook. Good for her! Would also be great for little boys who think that it is their purpose in life to go around earning the gratitude of little girls & princesses alike purely because they are little boys/princes.

Format: Paperback
Princess Smartypants is pretty and rich so all the princes want to marry her. But Smartypants enjoys being a Ms and fights to maintain her independence. Cole's excellent use of parody in this fast and lively paced version of Cinderella will arouse children's interest and persuade them to reconsider conventional stereotypes. Imaginative, colourful and comic illustrations support the text, which can be used to explore differences and consider which features of the traditional genre have been kept. Great for role-play, transitional and independent readers.

We are a year 3 class and have used Princess Smartypants in our literacy lessons. We think that the book Princess Smartypants has colourful and funky pictures, she is a strange princess, with horrid and enormous pets. But, overall Princess Smartypants is a fantastic and an exciting book.

Format: Paperback
We thought that this book was fabulous! This is a book about Princess Smartypants, who is different to all the other princesses in fairytales. She does not want to get married. She has unusual pets such as alligators, dragons and giant snails. The Princess set up tasks for each prince which are impossible and hilarious!

Our favourite part was when one prince had something strange happen to him when he was kissed...

From Year 3/4F

We would recommend this book for anybody aged between 2 and 90!

Format: Paperback
PRINCESS SMARTYPANTS ROCKS!!! Year 3HW have read Princess Smartypants in our Literacy lessons and we loved it! We thought it was exciting, funny and a bit silly. It was also clever, because Princess Smartypants tricked the Princes who wanted to marry her. The pictures were really bright and colourful, the motorbike one was really cool! Princess Smartypants is a scary princess and would make a very scary wife - none of the boys in 3HW want to marry her! We would recommend this book to children at any school, and to boys and girls everywhere. PRINCESS SMARTYPANTS ROCKS!!!

We thought Princess Smartypants by Babette Cole was a HUGE HIT!!! It was excellent. We especially liked it when the princess turned Prince Swashbuckle into a toad. We felt sorry for Prince Vertigo, and we thought the motorbike was really cool! We would recomend this book for anyone from 2 - 100.
