Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zoe loves cupcakes, especially pink ones, and princesses, especially magic ones. Unfortunately her greedy brother Ralph loves cupcakes too—he spoils everything! One day Zoe bakes a wish into her cupcakes. Suddenly she is a real princess!  But Ralph is still up to his old tricks. Will Princess Zoe finally find a way to give Ralph what he deserves?

Katherine Tegens humorous text and Kristin Varners magical artwork will satisfy every sister who has ever been plagued by a brother, and every child who believes in the power of magic!

Review:

"Zoe loves cupcakes and princesses with equal passion, but lately neither is very satisfying. Her older brother and his buddies are constantly eating her cupcakes, and Zoe's pretend tea parties with her stuffed animals are unfulfilling. 'Shall we walk around our kingdom today?' she asks her fuzzy bunny, who 'looked at her blankly. Zoe sighed. Maybe pretending to be a princess wasn't such a great thing after all.' Luckily for Zoe, simply making a wish while she bakes a new batch of cupcakes is enough to transform her into an actual princess, turn her 'plastic playhouse' into a castle, and give her truly interactive animal friends/subjects. There are many books available that celebrate the power of a child's imagination; this isn't one of them. Instead, author/publisher Tegen (Snowman Magic) uses magic to instantly solve every problem that comes Zoe's way, from the tedium of pretending to be a princess to her royal subjects' need for new outfits and her brother's cupcake thievery. Varner's dynamic acrylics are a bright spot in an otherwise uninspiring tale. Ages 4 — 8. Illustrator's agent: Maggie Byers-Sprinzeles, Byers-Sprinzeles Agency."
