Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 06/01/2010 PreS-Gr 1— This rhyming antidote to the many cloying princess books asserts that "Some [princesses] play in bright red socks that stink,/blue team jerseys that don't quite fit,/ accessorized with a baseball mitt,/and a sparkly crown." This is followed by spreads showing girls riding bikes, doing carpentry, and getting muddy while dancing with dogs in the rain—all while wearing their crowns. There's not really a story in this smoothly written yet somewhat didactic narrative, but the message is one worth hearing, and the whimsy is appealing. Some of the details in the colorful, computer-generated illustrations, in particular the girls' facial expressions, are a bit lacking, but the book's overall design is attractive.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL - Copyright 2010 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
