Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Princess Smartypants is pretty, rich, and single. She's also clever, headstrong, and independent. So when her parents demand that she finally marry, what's a princess to do? The cunning Smartypants sets up a series of impossible tasks that any suitor is destined to fall. But when Prince Swashbuckle shows up, has the princess finally met her match?<P>"Clever details add to the fun.... (Cole) presents a new slant on the traditional fairy tale princess in a light-handed, tongue-in-cheek manner. A refreshing alternative". — School Library Journal<P>"She's a thoroughly amusing modern princess, kind of like Pippi Longstocking pretending to be Stephanie of Monaco". — The Washington Post<P>"The illustrations provide the light-hearted touch that makes the story fun, with plenty of amusing monsters and humorous details". — Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Princess Smartypants enjoys being an independent Ms. and has no intention of getting married. When family pressure mounts, she agrees to look for a mate but sets the candidates tasks that are impossible. But then Prince Swashbuckle shows up....

--School Library Journal
