A feisty little girl asks her mother all the must-know questions such as, do princesses ride tricycles, climb trees, walk in the rain, do chores, eat bread crusts and wear hiking boots? Then the important question; do princesses seem at all like me? The answers to these compelling questions are answered in rhyme by a caring mother in a thoughtful yet light-hearted manner.
The illustrations are colorful, sassy and delightful. Children will be drawn to them and want to continue to turn the pages. Coyle has written a book that children will want to read again and again.
The rhyming text is cleverly and colorfully illustrated with cartoon-like line drawings. Each scene captures perfectly the spirited and likeable main character.
At the conclusion of the story, the little girl asks her mother, �Mommy, do princesses seem at all like me?� to which her mother replies, �Look inside yourself and see�� When the reader turns the page, there she finds a framed mirror, with her own face reflected, and beside it the words, �A princess is a place in your heart.� A fitting and perfect ending to a winning tale.

If you are interested in a story about a princess who defies stereotypes, buy The Paper Bag Princess by Robert N. Munsch instead.
This book is about a little girl who asks her mom all kinds of questions about princesses and what they do. On one page the little girl asks the question and on the opposite page, the mom answers in a rhyming way so when the two sentences are read together, they form a short rhyme. The little girl asks her mom if princesses climb trees, do any chores, and eat the crusts of their bread, just to name a few. They are basic questions about what any child would do and it shows that any girl can be a princess which I think is a really awesome way to tell a story. I love the way the story ends with "A princess is a place in your heart."
Overall, I'm very pleased with this book and plan to buy some more from the Princess Series in the future. I would like to buy board books for as long as possible so they hold up longer and we already had all of the other ones that appeared in my initial search for princess books so I was delighted to find several more books that fit my needs! My daughter said she loves this book and I'm happy with it so we would recommend it to anyone with a little girl who loves reading about princesses!

I really like the printed version of this book; however, I would not recommend buying the electronic version for the Kindle. The formatting doesn't seem quite right.Published 24 days ago by Amazon Customer
My granddaughter decided she wanted to be a princess. We did not want her buying into the whole Disney princess idea so I sent her this book. Princesses can do anything they want!Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Absolute adorable book! Purchased it for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday. She loves it, especially as she is in princess mode one minute and into rough housing the next.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
