Book Description

A fairy tale romance with a plus-sized heroine and plenty of dessert.

Princess Valeria of Amaranta is fat, but she doesn't care. All she wants to do is to eat and lead an idle life. When it becomes apparent she cannot get a husband, her mother decides to send her to the Royal Riviera Academy of Fighting Arts. For a chubby princess who has never picked up a sword, life at the Academy is torture. Worst of all, the food is terrible.

Valeria decides to improve Rivieran cuisine by sneaking into the palace kitchens and offering her expertise, never expecting the crown prince would take interest in her kitchen excursions. As they spend more time together, the princess must decide whether she should become thin or stay in the kitchens with her beloved desserts and remain fat.

full disclosure: weight has been a life-long struggle for me, so I may be slightly more sensitive about this topic than the average reader

But because of that very struggle, I thought I'd really enjoy this story, where the princess is not a willowy young women. Instead, we are told about how Valeria is stuffing her face with cream puffs (and thankfully her hair is in a braid, so it doesn't drag through the mess), her buttons are popping off, heels are breaking, and she waddles.

Sure, she ends up with a nice guy at the end, but that happy ending does not justify all the "humor" that is just plain demeaning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Role Model Story February 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from Library Thing to read and review. This is a wonderful story about a princess who ends up doing what she wants, regardless what others say and do. Princess Valeria does not heed her mother's warnings about eating too much and adding extra pounds, which makes her an unattractive choice for some young prince who is looking for a wife. Her parents send her to a training school, with a strict regime for developing into a strong warrior type and no time to nibble on all the goodies the kitchen can produce (and thus slim down). Valeria is not happy there until she finds a way to satisfy her desires as well as those of her mother. Today, we are bombarded by young emaciated girls from every direction. It is refreshing to read a story about one young girl who takes it upon herself to fight this norm, and still ends up satisfying everyone and herself. Valeria proves that you do not have to starve yourself and be rail thin to enjoy life and be successful. The author has presented a moral in a rather entertaining and interesting way. Princess Valeria is a strong, competent and confident girl/woman, who is not swayed by others or what society is trying to pass off as the norm. She is not intimidated by others or situations, but manages to overcome them with inner strength and a good dose of humor to boot. This is, I think, the real heart of the story. Because the story presents such a good alternative to what we see and hear daily (and nothing about someone who fights the rail thin myth perpetuated by the media), I recommend this story to all young girls struggling to find themselves and their place in life.

1.0 out of 5 stars What the heck kind of wrong message is that?! December 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If I could give negative stars, I would.

It completely incenses me that the message is "fat girl cannot get a man" and "all girls must be thin".

Guess what? Thin can be just as unhealthy as fat. You don't need a supermodel figure to be beautiful. And life does not revolve around getting a man.

No wonder we have so many young girls and teenagers with eating disorders. Princesses are perfectly allowed to get fat.

I was seriously grinning throughout the entire story... I love the concept of it, where the Princess doesn't have to change her looks in order to get her man... And the fact that the PLUS-SIZE Princess totally makes this story rock! :D Two thumbs way up for this leading author!

Fat girls, there is hope for us. I don't think we could remain healthy if we ate like this princess did but regardless she found a husband when others before seeing her were agreeable but on sight reneged. Disappointed mother sends princess to academy for workout and hopeful weight loss but no such luck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on Princesses and Princes February 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cute story, my grandchildren really enjoyed how most princesses in the book wanted to train to be heros and have adventures, I liked how the heroine decided she didn't want to be like everyone else but do what she loved.
