From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 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

* “Lanquetin’s digitally rendered illustrations depict girls of all shapes, sizes and colors; they are mischievous, exuberant, dirty, exhausted, serious and, most of all, authentic. A joyful and much-needed antidote to the precious pink pestilence that has infested picture books aimed at girls.”

It's a breath of fresh air after all the Disney princess books where girls just do housework and look pretty.
