Personal response: I really enjoyed this book because I believe it is a good amount of advanced for a young age group.

I think this book had a good story line with a common life lesson that a lot of children can relate to. I think the most important thing about the book is illustrations. The pictures have a lot for you to look at during read aloud. The books also includes a lot of extensive vocabulary that can make for great discussion.

Read aloud- I think the illustration would be fun for kids in kindergarten or first grade to look at while reading aloud. The story line is a fun story just for enjoyment.

The king orders palace staff to devise a way to get the princess back on track. While not as charming as James Thurber's "Many Moons," this clever story, with its whimsical illustrations, is quite satisfying to this lover of vegetables and happy endings.

When Nicki refuses to eat her vegetables, she goes from being called Princess Perfect to Princess Picky, and the worried king orders his staff to create bribes fit for a finicky royal eater.

I'd had this on my list for ages, and finally got a copy from the Boston Library to read to my nephews. The 2 year old did not pay attention but the 4 year old really liked this story about a princess who is coaxed into eating her vegetables.
