Stumbled across this series of books at an outlet mall and brought them home for my daughter (6 years) to read together. Very cute series...a little reminiscent of Harry Potter in that it is about a group of little princesses who are off to the Princess Academy. They earn (and lose) tiara points in their quest to become part of the Tiara Club (almost like a graduation of sorts). Each of the first 6 books is a story about each of the girls in their first year. The second set of 6 books is about e ...more

The first main character is princess Charlotte. I read this before, but some words are hard to me. So I read several times and I read with audiobook in a little bit fast speed. Now it's okay.

I usually dream of being princess myself. So I thought this book would help me to understand and know about princess thing. In some aspect I feel it is a little bit childish, not princessy.(Of course, before being princesses, they are just children! haha) I think they will be fine and become real prince

If Brianna was rating this would be a five star without a doubt, but for myself I thought it was ok so I gave it three stars. It's not a literary masterpiece, but cute fun chapter book for early girl readers. I was actually a little surprised she sat and listened to the whole thing straight through, it's the first time I've attempted a chapter book with her. We'll read the others in the series for sure.

And just a note, it's not like Harry Potter at all except that they are both going to a schoo

This is a great series for young girls. There are 6 books in each Tiara Club series (and there are several series). Each book is told by a different princess attending the Royal Palace Academy where they are all learning the elements to be the perfect princess. Manners and courtesy are stressed and the princesses are awarded "tiara points" along the way. In every book, the princess has a problem to solve and I like how they work things out for themselves and ask for help when needed.

What did Princess Charlotte learn?
She learned a great lesson. That if you meet new princesses and you're sacred to meet them, you can become friends. And that's exactly what happened to Charlotte. She met some new princesses and became friends with them, even though she was a little scared when they arrived. Then they made themselves into the Rose Room Princesses.

The illustrations make me nervous--they look like the Bratz little sisters! And the stories are awfully pat. But they're not badly written, they're easy to read and little girls are going to eat these up with a spoon along with the "Rainbow Magic" series.

A lovey compelling story about the importance of friendsip and helping each other. The girls are all very strong female leads and are always very kind and always try their best to help each other and fix their problems.

Charlotte uses her wet dress to put out the fire and wishes that her friends could have dresses for the brithday ball but now Charlotte doese not have a dress for the brithday ball P.S.this is favorite Tiara Club book.
The first entry in a cute, and very pink series of beginning chapter books about a group of young princesses enrolled in a Princess Academy.

It was really nice of Charlotte to run after the rose roomers luggage that was on a coach, even though she didn't really know them that well.

I have to qualify this review -- I think this story is pretty bad, but my daughter loved it at six years old.

Little princesses living together in 'The Princess Academy'. They make friends and help each other when in trouble. I think the younger girls would love the dresses and going to a party!

J'ai aimé le livre parce que toutes les 6 filles ont travaillé ensemble pour aider Princesse Charlotte à avoir son bal.

This is a book for a girl who just loves princess things. I felt that there wasn't a lot to be said about the story. I would recommend the Rainbow Magic series instead.
