This is just THE most delightful book, perfect for princesses of all ages! When we read it I was transported back to my own childhood with tales of beautiful princesses, charming princes and fantastic magical creatures. The author has succeeded, in persuading his own daughter of the merits of doing the right thing, of transporting her to a land of make believe in which she is the beautiful princess heroine. Isn't this something we all wanted when we were little girls...?
To set the scene: when the author's daughter was just beginning the first grade, she was not happy about school. So when he would wake her each morning, whatever she would say to get out of going became the subject for a PRINCESS FABLE. If she'd say, "I don't want to," he'd make up a tale about The Princess Who Always Said, "I Don't Wanna". If she pulled the covers over her head, he'd tell her the story of The Princess Who Hid Under The Covers. By the end of each Fable he'd have her dressed and ready for school, with her eyes wide open and full of hope...
"THE PRINCESS FABLES" is a collection of eleven inspirational stories for young girls who may still dream of being a princess. Each princess embarks on an adventure of self discovery and along the way, learns about the importance of trust, devotion, courage and the power of love. These classic tales transport little girls to a time and place where they are the heroines and can create their own happy endings. Every delicate pen and ink illustration reflects the classic fairy tale drawings of the late 19th century. The book is recommended for children of 3+. Personally, I feel that it is suitable for children aged 8+ to read independently, although the stories lend themselves nicely to being read aloud to children of all ages. Younger children would especially enjoy these at bedtime.
The Princess Fables was just awarded an Honorable Mention at the 2014 Los Angeles Book Festival.
