This year two girls will be selected as princesses in the town parade, and Grace can't wait to be one of them. It's the perfect opportunity to dress up?but how, exactly, should a princess costume look? Grace asks her teacher for help, and soon the whole class is learning that there's more to princesses than pink dresses and frills. From Kenya to China and from warriors to spies, princesses are a multicultural and multitalented bunch, and there are just as many kinds of happily ever afters?both for the royals and for Grace's community and its princess parade.

Mary Hoffman's picture books featuring this intrepid heroine have earned major critical acclaim; amongst other awards, Amazing Grace was a iReading Rainbow selection and a Booklist Editors? Choice. Grace's latest adventure is sure to delight her established fans?and win the hearts of many more!

Grace, the feisty and much-loved heroine of previous titles, returns in this entertaining and thoughtful story about what makes a princess. Grace has always wanted to be a princess so when the chance to be one in the carnival comes along, she jumps at it. But what exactly do princesses do? Just standing there in a pink dress doesn’t seem to be enough. Luckily Grace finds out that there are all kinds of other princesses who are brave and clever and she and her friends can each be one. (Book Ahead 0-7)Grace comes to see the difference between ephemeral princess wishes and real life princesses of her own inheritance in the brilliant Princess Grace.

    I don't know why so many books about African Caribbean children have to dedicate a section to a broken home.Note to the author there are plenty of Black children that live with their Mother AND Father.The story was okay but the stereotypes annoyed me too much to appreciate it.

    I bought this to read to my 3.5 year old daughter who is starting to show awareness of differences between her and her friends at nursery. Like many girls her age, she is Disney mad and loves anything with a 'usually blonde haired blue-eyed' princess. She was slightly sceptical the first time we read this (you mean there are other types of princesses?) and it was a great opportunity to discuss and praise her differences in a harmless fun way. This is now her favourite book and she constantly tells her friends stories of all the different European, Chinese, Nigerian princesses who have important jobs as spies and ride on horses!

    I bought this book for my four year old daughter who loved "Amazing Grace". She loves this one even more and we read it most nights at her request. Grace, like many real girls I know, loves hearing about fairy tale princesses, but discovers there is more than one way of being pretty in the story, and that real princesses don't just sit around looking beautiful. Great story, great role model, lovely illustrations.

    I purchased this Princess Grace for my God daughter Lucia. The book arrived within 7 days from ordering it and in FANTASTIC condition. I will buy the collection for another young child because the language in the book is appropriate. A beautiful adventurous book with excellent visuals and likeness to children of African Caribbean origin. A MUST buy.

    This is a terrific book with great pictures and an uplifting story that really engages children.I bought it after a girl at my 5 year old daughter's school told her that she couldn't be a Princess because she doesn't have blonde hair and blue eyes. My daughter - who loves everything to do with Princesses - was devestated and clearly troubled by this. So I went looking for books that illustrated that Princesses come in all shapes and sizes, not just the "Disney" stereotype.Princess Grace proved to be a big help. It tells the story of a little girl who's worried that she can't be a Princess in her school parade because she doesn't think she looks like a Princess. Her teacher helps by finding stories of Princesses from all over the world who not only look different but are all reknowned for different talents and achievements - not just being pretty and wearing pink!Not only does my daughter love this book but so do all her friends regardless of their colour. She even took it to school for reading time and it was a big hit with the whole class - including the boys!

    Love Books Project bought this book to send to Zambia to be used as part of our literacy programme for underprivileged children in schools and orphanages! The book is beautifully illustrated and wonderful story, the children thoroughly enjoyed reading it! We highly recommend it!

    My daughter loved this book and has asked me to read it to her again and again. I like that it gently challenges traditional images of what it means to be a princess/feminine.

    brilliant book for little girls of all races, great to knock the stereo type of the typical princess! My daughter loves it, wonderful illustrations.
