This is like a field guide to different princesses: their personalities, their interests, strengths, weaknesses. There's lots to look over in sidebars, diagrams, and smaller pictures. It reminds me of a book I used to love when I was little about the world of dwarfs - you feel you're stepping into an imaginary world that's fully realized. The illustrations are not the usual frilly type of thing you'd expect of a princess book - how refreshing!

It feels like a picture book, but is text-heavy like a chapter book. I was worried it wouldn't find its reader, but it has become a hit with third grade girls.
