45 months - this books starts out a bit disappointing... Oh no not another girl who wants to be the pretty princess but luckily things turn around. Worth a read. ( )

This is another book that makes a good retelling of the classic princess story. In this one we see our princess become a self sufficient business woman who makes a mean pizza and ponders a strange possible twist that would make her would be mother-in-law her would be step-mother. ( )

My children have mostly outgrown picture books. I think I enjoyed this more than they did. ( )

Review: This is the story of a princess who has along with her father, lost her place at their palace. Unable to do common people tasks well, Paulina, hears of a prince looking for a bride, and rushes to try for his hand. Put through a series of classic princess tasks, the princes' mother, the Queen, Paulina realizes that she actually does not want to be the princes' wife. She finds a new calling, to be a pizza maker!

Genre: This is an excellent example of a fairytale. This book takes elements from the the classic fairy tales, such as the Princess and the Pea and Cinderella and inserts them into this whimsical tale. This blending of old with new is a defining characteristic of fairytales. Outlandish and imaginative are as well, and both can be seen in the illustrations of this text as well as the interesting plot twists! ( )
