it was amazing

Most folks know Ms. Lowry for her Newbery titles, but I am a fan of her snarky titles such as The Willoughbys. Her latest, The Birthday Ball, is a funny tale of Princess Patricia Priscilla. The well-read princess is to be betrothed at her 16th birthday ball to one of three (or maybe four) disgusting suitors. These suitors are described in their disgusting lack of glory including their horrible personality flaws, horrific appearances and terrible odors. On top of all of this, the poor princess is just so BORED with royal life. It is great fun to follow her as she sneaks into the village and samples the pleasures of peasant life. The satisfying conclusion has everyone getting exactly what they deserve at the Birthday Ball.
