None.


Little Kid Reaction

Our daughter asked for this story several times. She loves all things princess ... and make the princess a "real" heroine, and she's hooked.

Parent Reaction

This is a cute story. We were a bit leery of yet another "princess" book, but this story has a nice twist. We like that in the end, it is teamwork, not looks or individual "stardom" that wins the day.

Type of Book:
This personalized picture book stars your child as a princess who handles a dragon with a temper tantrum.
Educational Themes:

The substance of the story makes the "princess" element secondary to the plot. There are plenty of things to talk about: friendship, fairness, teamwork, problem solving, understanding feelings (i.e., empathy for grumpy dragons or people), and handling change/new things/being nervous, to name a few.
