Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jane, the Princess of 8th Street, has many royal duties to attend to. Between having tea with her andldquo;ladies-in-waitingandrdquo; (her doll collection), keeping up with her studies (Math for Monarchs and Pink Power are two of her favorite books), and dealing with her horrible toad of a brother, Jane doesnandrsquo;t often have time to venture from her palace or socialize with other young royals.

But one day, on a trip to the market, her mother insists that Jane go play in the park with the other children. Jane is shy around the other young lords and ladies, and things become even worse when she is confronted by Samantha, the Princess of 10th Street. Will the two princesses be able to overcome their differences? Will Jane finally make a friend?

This cute and clever picture book proves thereandrsquo;s more to being a princess than just dresses and tea parties.

Praise for The Princess of 8th Street:

andquot;Alsenas dresses Jane in pink frills, and the storyandrsquo;s jacket is awash in sparkles, but with tantrums and worries, Princess Jane is identifiably, and most definitely, just a child navigating the world of making friends. A refreshing dose of reality for all those princess wannabes.andquot;

andmdash;Kirkus Reviews

andquot;Alsenas's narration has a lovely sense of formality that instantly establishes a sense of play and welcomes readers into Jane's world.andquot;

andmdash;Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Everybody knows your typical dragon breathes fire.

But when Crispin tries to breathe fire on his seventh birthday, fire doesn't come out—only whipped cream! Each time Crispin tries to breathe fire, he ends up with

Band-Aids

marshmallows

teddy bears?

Crispin wonders if he’ll ever find his inner fire. But when a family emergency breaks out, it takes a little dragon with not-so-typical abilities to save the day.

With wry humor and whimsical illustrations, Not Your Typical Dragon is the perfect story for any child who can't help feeling a little bit different.

Synopsis:

Not all princesses are made of sugar and spice--some are made of funnier, fiercer stuff

Princess Amanita laughs in the face of danger. Brakeless bicycles, pet scorpions, spiky plants--that's her thing. So when quiet Prince Florian gives her roses, Amanita is unimpressed . . . until she sees their glorious thorns! Now she must have rose seeds of her own. But when huge, honking noses grow instead, what is a princess with a taste for danger to do?

For readers seeking a princess with pluck comes an independent heroine who tackles obstacles with a bouquet of sniffling noses. At once lovely and delightfully absurd, here's a story to show how elastic ideas of beauty and princesses can be.

I love this book! I discovered it in my twenties and have lost count of the times I've read it since. The Paper Bag Princess is a refreshing and empowering story for children of all ages that provides a welcome addition to the collective pool of literary role models. Highly recommended.

This book is touching in every sense. Not only does it involve a strong and fearless princess, but it teaches us about the many possibilities there can be in a fantasy book involving a princess and a prince.
