Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—As her tired parents lead their prancing little girl off to bed, all three become transformed into royal personages via the hall mirror. What follows is a fantasy bedtime routine in which the little princess, home from the ball, climbs the palace stairs and enters her royal bed chamber where "a frothy glass of milk with chocolate cream éclairs" await her. A servant draws her royal bath, ladies-in-waiting sing a lullaby, and there's a bedtime story, too. Most magical of all, the two royals who attend the princess become parents again, just in time for a good-night kiss. "Every...shade of pink—/mauve and peach and rose," the princess's favorites, predominate in Small's humorous watercolor and crayon cartoon spreads. The family dog rolls its eyes as the little girl begins her routine. She bathes in a swan-shaped tub and sleeps in a vast room complete with an ornate, canopied bed. The child is all motion and delight as she savors her many amenities. The rhyming text is brief and will be more thoroughly enjoyed by youngsters who have some knowledge of fairy tales. The princess polishes her glass slippers and kisses her frog, Prince, while her dad searches under the mattress for peas. This is a good choice for parents seeking a bedtime story for their aspiring princesses. Karma Wilson's Princess Me (S & S, 2007) can add even more royal pleasure.—Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT

I have not given this to my daughter yet but plan on reading it to her class for her 7th birthday. I would say that the ideal ages are 4-6. Great illustrations. My daughter would be able to read it herself and think it interesting enough to read/be read to. Just enough words on each page (not too many to be overwhelming and long enough to soak in the pictures). Lovely story. Recommend.

As others state, the book is about a little girl's bedtime ritual. At the beginning you can see her looking into a mirror imagining what princess life is like as she starts down the hall to begin getting ready for bed.. (I had to explain this part to my daughter - why the mirror was not an exact reflection).

We picked out this book at the library after her first day of school last week. She cannot put it down and makes me read it to her every night since. Tonight, she looked at me and said she was sad she had to bring it back to the library soon and that she loves this book. She's always been a reader, and typically prefers Ariel (Disney princesses), Pinkalicious, Ladybug at the Beach and others... but I've never seen a look in her eye quite like this. I immediately came downstairs and purchased the book... and am writing the review which I never really do.

It really is an adorable book and any 4-5 year old will love it!!

This book is an instant classic. It blends make-believe with all the things that a child must do to get ready for bed, with charming verse and imaginative illustrations. This is the perfect book for any little girl who wishes to be a princess.
