PPBF: The Worst Princess and 3 WINNERS


Author: Anna Kemp
Illustrator: Sara Ogilvie
Publisher: Random House, 2012
Ages: 3-7yrs
Themes: princesses, dragons, stories in rhyme
Opening: Once upon a time, in a tower near you, lived a lonely princess – the Princess Sue.
Summary: (from my library catalog) Lonely Princess Sue longs to leave her castle tower, but when her prince finally rescues her, she realizes she is destined for a less traditional partner.


I like this book because: first of all, I love how the opening line tells us we’re in for some great humor! The rhyme frolics sprightly without hurrying – and gosh, who can resist a princess in chucks intent on adventure? And for those who know me, the ART!

  1. This sounds super cute! I love the opening, too! And the fact that it’s in rhyme is appealing to me, of course! Love the illustrations! And…my library has it! Bonus! I just put it on hold 🙂
    The Pinterest dragon activities are just wonderful! I’m pinning them for future use!

  2. Hey, I love that opening too. Sounds like a great book. The illustrations are super. MUST go on my list of ‘to buy’ books. This is the fourth one today. I do love a sprightly rhyme 🙂 Thanks pal.


  3. Congrats to all the winners! 🙂

    I love that “in a tower near you” part…that definitely grabs a reader from the get-go. Going to check it out because I do adore “once upon a time” stories (too much Grimm, Lang, and Andersen as a child). LOL!
