Loved it as a kid and my son loves it too
It was my favourite book. Now my son loves it. It is a simple story as to how wit can beat brawn, and that girls dont have to be dressed up to be a success.

Unmoved by this book.
I've heard so much about this book and was really looking forward to reading it to my girls. The storyline was quite lame in the end. We have quite a few strong/alternate princess stories but this was disappointing. There are other much more entertaining stories with a similar theme such as "The Worst Princess" which shows a strong girl who gets along fine without being 'saved' by a prince. Another clever book is "The Unruly Queen" which is a story about a young princess who is out of control and the nanny who tames her. So witty and hilarious.
