Great rhymes and nicely empowering. Loved it!

What a fun read--the rhymes are excellent, the story is funny, and the illustrations are great. Perfect for the not-so-stereotypical princess in your life.

Bright, colored-in-doodle- illustrations make this book a joy to read. ALSO the rhyme is good! Fun example of the "Rhymes and Songs" genre.

The princess waits in her castle for a knight to come save her and to get her out of the castle. The princely knight does indeed come, but he takes the princess away to his castle. She feels stifled and wants to be free. She spies a dragon whom she befriends. The take off together and wreak havoc happily ever after.

The illustrations are very colorful and lots of fun.

The story is a twist on the typical princess in the castle tower story. This princess wants the freedom to go out and get dirty and to play. The prince is shown to be a mamby pamby kind of knight who only fights frogs and old men. He expects the princess to wear pretty dresses and to let him to the manly work. Princess wants nothing of this life and sets out to create her own life.

I like many parts of this story twist. But there is a lot of negativity I do not care for. The princess calls the knights twits and uses the word stupid. But the rhyming is what drove me the craziest. I liked the princess' use of more modern language, but the rhyming was so bad! Perhaps it was this way on purpose to enhance the parody, but after a couple of pages I just couldn't take it. This story is recommended for ages 3-7, but due to the more mature aspects, I would recommend for ages 5-8.
