Editorial Reviews


“Nguyen’s cartoonish illustrations and Bridges’ cheekily humorous text are entertaining.”  —Horn Book Guide

About the Author

Shirin Yim Bridges’ first book, Ruby's Wish, was a Publishers Weekly Best Children’s Book and won the Ezra Jack Keats award. It is on several state reading lists, has been translated into seven languages, and is now in its eleventh edition. The Umbrella Queen made TIME/CNN’s Top 10 Lists and was also named a Best Children’s Book by the Bank Street College of Education. Horrible Hauntings won an IRA/CBC Children's Choices Award. Mary Wrightly So Politely launched in April 2013 to starred reviews in both Kirkus and Publishers Weekly. To date, every book that Shirin has written or published has achieved national acclaim.

Responsible for the pen-and-watercolor illustrations that bring our princesses to life, Albert Nguyen received his MFA from the Academy of Art in 2006. He grew up in Minnesota before moving to San Francisco. In addition to being fond of drawing, painting, comics, and cartoons, Albert has a special affection for chubby animals.
The Thinking Girl’s Treasury of Real Princesses are his first children’s books.

Throughout history, there have been plenty of young women who used their power to make quite the difference. "The Thinking Girl's Treasury of Real Princesses" is a series of picturebooks engaging written by Shrin Yim Bridges and superbly illustrated by Albert Nguyen, covering the history of various princesses throughout history, with insight into their culture and their deeds. "Hatshepsut of Egypt" is the story of an Egyptian Princess during the era of King Tut, credited with much success often attributed to Tut. "Sorghaghtani of Mongolia" tells of the woman who ruled over a section of the famed Genghis Khan's empire after his death. "Artemisia of Caria" tells of a woman who became an admiral and leader of men into battle during the time of antiquity. "Isabella of Castile" explains how one Spanish princess dared to stand against a male-dominated marriage that was the norm of the time. "Nur Jahan of India" is how one woman ruled over almost all of India, becoming one of the most powerful people in the world and finding her own touching story of love. "Qutlugh Terkan Katun of Kirman" is a true life fairy tale of a woman who married to become a princess, and even after her husband's death, she continued to rule over his lands for decades. This series is aimed at girls in later elementary grades and holds much encouragement that girls can make quite the difference in the world.
