Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lala dwells in a cave that lies deep below the ground, worlds away from the castle where three beautiful princesses live. She is the best krinkle-nut digger by far, but she longs for more: the dresses, the parties, the royal life. Up, up, up Lala climbs and sneaks into the castle. She tries on the princessesand#8217; gownsand#8230;and is caught. But the princesses dress Lala up and let her attend a ball. She stumbles. She bumbles. She is laughed at. Can Lala find it in her heart to forgive the girls who tricked her? Will Lala find out what it means to be a real princess?

Review:

"Yearning to break free of her life underground, Lala, a young monster with scaly arms and lettuce hair, heads for a mountaintop castle, where she endures public humiliation at the hands of three princesses ('You're a monster forever,' they jeer. 'Now get out of here!'). The next day, using her insider's knowledge, she rescues the three from a brute with 'sour beast-breath,' but declines to befriend them even after gratitude makes the princesses relent. Boiger's pastel paintings play up the contrast between the princesses' charmed existence and Lala's comfy burrow, and while MacHale's (the Pendragon series) verse--like his heroine--is a little lumpy, he delivers his message about handling mean girls with sincerity. Ages 4 — 6. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of the Pendragon series makes his picture book debut. Deep in a cave there's a sweet little monster with very big dreams. She wishes she was pretty. She wishes she could dance. She wishes to be special--and this is her chance. Full color.
