Publisher Comments:

Poor baby, no one calls her by her real name! “I am not a buttercup, or a giggly goose. I am not a cupcake. Please don’t call me Little Lamb, and never ever Gum Drop,” she insists. With a curtsy and a twirl, again and again our protagonist makes it abundantly clear who she is. She wears a shiny crown, a fancy dress, sparkly shoes, a velvet cape, and glittery jewels. There are more clues too—she dances with princes, has perfect manners, and makes sure that everyone in her kingdom is happy. Her persistence pays off in the end, and even the youngest readers will be cheering, “Princess Baby!”

This is the first book in the Princess Baby collection, followed by the picture book Princess Baby, Night-Night and the board book Princess Baby on the Go!

Review:

"The curly-haired and clearly much-adored young heroine is sick and tired of people calling her 'Cupcake,' 'Giggly Goose,' 'Missy Muffin' and other such sobriquets. After all, her 'real name' — and the book's title — should be obvious from her shiny crown (it glitters on the book jacket), or her wand, or her innate sense of noblesse oblige ('I have perfect manners... and make sure that everyone in my kingdom is happy'). Katz's (Counting Kisses) characters are the very definition of pert. They have big round heads and tiny cute eyes, and they frolic on pastel backgrounds of polka dots, clouds and flowers; even the human beings looks like plush toys. Toddler girls just discovering the joys of dress-up should find this as enticing as a glittery petticoat, although the same idea received more astute treatment this past fall in Karma Wilson and Christa Unzner's Princess Me. Ages 1-5." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
