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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Bought this for my stepdaughter's sixth birthday. She is a self proclaimed princess but also loves playing in the mud, climbing, and helping me fix our motorbikes. She started questioning what is for girls and what is for boys and when I saw this book I had to buy it for her. She is very pleased to hear she can be a princess and also ride a motorbike and marrying gross boys is not required for either! In a world where girls are taught that their priority is being pretty for boys and not thinking for themselves or having fun books like this are a godsend. She loves reading it, thinks the pictures are brilliant and seems to have stopped her worrying whether she's allowed to like mud and motorbikes for now.

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.
