A very sweet and short story. I look forward to reading it with my daughter when she is a bit older.

I like Princess Amy's attitude about life and herself. There is a lot of focus on looks and how important some people make them in this book, giving them much more attention then they need, which is often true in real life as well. I like that Amy overcomes that and doesn't let it get her down and that she is a very happy girl with a very ordinary gift.

While marrying off the princess is everyone's primary concern in this book, it is not Amy's and thats nice to see as well. A princess that isn't seeking a Prince Charming and is happy with the life she chooses for herself. Naturally Charming does come along but not in a typical fairy tale fashion.

The book itself is short and easy to read. A very delightful fairy tale.
