PreSchool-Grade 1—As any library staff member will tell you, there can never be too many princess stories. While this collaboration between Julie Andrews and her daughter, Emma Hamilton, does not stand out as anything particularly different, it does have enough sparkle to keep young readers interested. Geraldine leads a rather ordinary life, and each page highlights a part of her mundane day. However, in the grand tradition of other literary, bedazzled mini-divas, Geraldine's imagination and love for the color pink brighten the daily grind of being a scab-kneed little girl. Readers will enjoy Geraldine's princess attitude and the vibrant fantasy brought to life through Davenier's ink and colored pencil illustrations. However, for girly girl stories with a bit more attitude, stick with reigning princesses Eloise, Fancy Nancy, and Olivia.—Sarah Townsend, Norfolk Public Library, VA

A girl who believes she is really a princess isn't a new premise in children's literature, so it's refreshing to find a very real little girl as our protagonist, especially given a title that evokes an expectation of a more traditionally froufrou young royal. Geraldine (Gerry) just knows she is a princess and narrates the events of her day, offering commentary about her many doubters: “My brother, Stewart, says princesses don't wear sneakers and don't have scabby knees.” Gerry's type of princess isn't too precious; in response to her brother, she asserts, “Fairy princesses are very practical.” A long day passes—breakfast, school, playtime, and dinner—before the one person who never doubts her comes home: Daddy. Freckled, spiky haired, pink clad, and irrepressible, Geraldine is reminiscent of Eloise. She lets kids know it's not necessary to be prim and proper to be a “real” princess; princesses who just want to have fun will find plenty of that here. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Diane Foote

The content of this book is terrific, a beautiful story in a beautiful series of books by Julie Andrews and her daughter
read it myself and loved it. I also made
her a Valentine from a copy of the front
cover. It is perfect for Valentine since
it has a big Heart on the front.
