I’m loving ‘The Worst Princess’ by Anna Kemp. Available for purchase from Amazon. Princess Sue is a good role model for young girls to identify with, as opposed to the stereotypical portrayals of traditional fairytale princesses. The princess is fiesty & independant rather than the pretty in pink variety which is a nice change. The rhyming throughout is really what makes it. It is easy to read and gathers momentum as it progresses allowing kids to anticipate what comes next.
Here’s a book description:
Once upon a time, in a tower near you, Lived a sad princess; the Princess Sue. “Some day,” she sighed, “my prince will come, But I wish he’d move his royal bum.” But when Princess Sue’s prince finally does arrive, he’s not quite what she had in mind. Find out how the feisty princess escapes the clutches of her twit of a prince in this funny twist on the traditional princess tale.
