Linda You could read it to a six year old, or let a ten year old read it themselves. Good fun book.

Princess Florizella lives in a fairytale world, but she is Not A Proper Princess. After all, a Princess is just a Prince with extra Ssss...

This fantastic storybook has three full length stories, each with several chapters. Florizella is feisty but doesn't always think ahead, brave but not always nice. In other words, she is very much not a Perfect Princess. But she always tries her best. Kids will love the humour - my favourite is the fairies having a Farmer's Market, buying and selling Farmers

I have read several books written by Philippa Gregory. I love them. When I saw this book in the library, I decided to give it a go. All the other books I've read were written for adults, and I realised this one is for young readers, but that never stopped me before.

The Princess Rules is three stories. A not-so-ordinary princess and her easy to get along with prince (and closest friend) tend to find trouble everywhere they go. Yes, these stories are fairy tales with a twist. They are charming and

This book is brilliant! So much fun. Three short stories about a fairy tale princess who simply won’t follow the princess rules, and how she makes friends and helps people.

Not only are they great fun adventures, but there’s a few subtle lessons in there about gender stereotypes, not conforming to other people’s ideas about how you should be, and how to treat others. But there’s absolutely no moralising. The illustrations are lovely too. I love princess Florizella so much. Highly recommended.

This book is a really enjoyable collection of three stories that follow Princess Florizella the not so perfect princess. They challenge the stereotypes of what a princess should be and will be a great opening to discussion with my class. The stories are full of humour that children will enjoy with lovely illustrations.
