really liked it
bookshelves: princess-like

I first read The Princess Tales Collection when I was about nine--one of the first books in English I ever read. I absolutely loved them. Gail Carson Levine became one of my favorite authors.
I recently reread them, ten years later, and they are still as poignant and sweet and funny as ever. This one, Princess Sonora and the Long Sleep, is my personal favorite. I loved when the fairy Adrianna made Sonora so smart and I laughed so much at the stupid Prince Melvin. I liked how Levine never makes her princesses ordinary, and this one is a misfit, a supersmart girl many of us wouldn't like to have around.Yet even she finds a perfect match.*Spoiler* My
favorite part is when Prince Christopher is totally grossed out and doesn't want to kiss Sonora, until she begins to talk in her sleep.
It's memorable.
