More About the Author

Daisy Piper has always loved reading children's books. After earning a degree in English Literature from Dalhousie University, Halifax NS, she decided to try her hand at writing her own children's stories, and hasn't stopped since.

"Growing up, I spent a lot of time at our local library, and that's where my love of books began. I would disappear into a story so completely, it was really like going to another world. Now, I create my own stories which young readers can dive into, like I did," Daisy explains.

Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara is the first book in an exciting new series which features humor, fantastic creatures, and a tiara that talks back!

Format: Paperback
Callie, an ordinary girl, gets a series of messages in her Alpha-Bits on the
morning of her twelfth birthday. The messages tell her that she is a
princess and that she must find the secret world of Abilon to fight the
battle that prophecies have foretold for centuries. Callie eventually finds
the way into Abilon with the help of her best friend Lewis and her dead
mother's diary to finally end the evil clutching the land. But not without
some unwelcome guests.

I liked this book because it's about an ordinary girl thrown into a land of
mythical beasts, war and some really weird clothes to finally find her
place, as Calandria Arabella Philomena Louisa Anastasia Richards - Princess
of Abilon. It's amazing, wonderfully told and the best part - hilarious!

Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara is a cute tale of one young girl's journey on which she ultimately finds herself. Filled with witty humor and a magical land of its own, this book will surely delight younger readers as they get lost in the world of Albion.

I really enjoyed reading about the world of Albion, and the way in which it had its own customs and history. Albion is a magical land much different from ours on Earth. On Albion magic is possible, but only those who are part of the royal family can master it. Also, in Albion there are things like animated gargoyles, interesting assortments of food, and of course, one talking tiara. It was so much fun getting to read about the land of Albion as Callie explored the palace's nooks and crannies, and learned all about herself as well.

There was a very lighthearted, upbeat quality to Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara. The writing was humorous at times and would entertain any young reader. It truly felt like I was reading a fairytale of some sorts as I read how Callie's life went from normal, to beyond abnormal. However, there were also times when Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara took on a more sinister, dark feel. Some chapters were told from a different character's perspective and you could feel the writing turn to a more ominous side of the story. I really enjoyed seeing the story unravel from two very different perspectives.

I think it would have been nice if this book was a bit longer though, so it could contain more history about Albion, and possibly Callie could have spent a longer time there as well. Callie's visit to the world of Albion felt rushed, and things were moving so quickly.

My 11 year old recieved a kindle for Christmas, thus far I have been disappointed in the lack of good deals on books for her age (we have been paying the same price as paperbacks). Here is the exception!! Downloaded this book for free and my daughter LOVES it. Going to check out the other Callie Chronicles right now. Thank you Amazon for putting up a great deal for young readers!

Callie Richards has had an ordinary life. That is, until her twelfth birthday. When she was younger, her mother died in a tragic car accident, leaving Callie and her father behind. Even though she has had to live without a mother, Callie has had a good life. She is surrounded by love from her father and her best friend, Lewis. The only person that seems to hate her is the class bully, Wanda.

Wanda is horribly jealous of Callie, and seems to have made it her personal mission to make Callie's life miserable. When Callie receives a mysterious gift at school for her birthday, Wanda's jealousy reaches a new height. She eavesdrops on Callie and Lewis while they gaze at the beautiful necklace Callie has received, and discovers that Callie and Lewis are about to embark on a grand adventure. Later that night, she follows Callie and Lewis into a secret tunnel that acts as a magical portal to a new world. Wanda is tired of being unloved and overlooked; she is determined to make a name for herself... no matter the cost.

When the trio reaches the other side of the cave, Wanda has disappeared. Callie and Lewis begin their adventures within the walls of Albion's palace. While she is there, Callie learns that she is a princess--and the rightful heir to the throne--of the kingdom. Stranger yet, the Queen is her grandmother! All of the news is exciting; except for the part that names Callie as the sole defender of the kingdom against the evil Raven Queen. Armed with her new (and often uncontrolled) magical powers, her best friend Lewis (the newly appointed Royal Advisor), and a nearsighted dragon, Callie sets off to defeat the Raven Queen and save the kingdom of Albion.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a very original fairy tale, full of action and mystery.

Format: Paperback
I started reading Daisy Piper's Princess Callie and the Totally Amazing Talking Tiara by the light of an LED flashlight during a particularly nasty storm that knocked out our power. Somehow, that seemed fitting, like I was a little kid staying up past her bedtime, hiding under the blankets to sneak in just a few more pages. Calandria Arabella Philomena Louisa Anastasia Richards, Callie for short, got me through what could have been an incredibly boring night, as I was starting to get stir crazy five minutes after the power went out (I would never have survived on the prairie).

Callie's story begins on her 12th birthday, which starts out with a message in her cereal from another land and just gets stranger from there. By the end of the day, before her celebratory pizza has even had a chance to start digesting, Callie has received a mysterious package from a stranger, butt heads with the class bully, found out she was really a princess, discovered a door hidden on the floor of her late mother's garden, descended a stairway into a magical kingdom, and chatted with a pair of Gargoyles name., of all things, Terry and Kevin. And those STILL aren't the strangest things that will happen to Callie before the story ends. With the help of her best friend Lewis, a cast of endearing characters, and the titular talking tiara, Callie will have to stop an evil queen from stealing the Enchanted Throne and enslaving the entire kingdom. Did I mention that she's only just turned 12?

Princess Callie and the Amazing Talking Tiara is such a fun book. Daisy Piper expertly crafted an entire world-complete with it's own disturbingly gross cuisine- and brought it to life right before my eyes. Callie is an awesome little girl full of kindness and wit, with a little more than a hint of fragility.
