Ok, maybe it's a 4.75 star book. But hey, let's round up generously because this book is so pleasantly different than the usual princess stories.

I've already read it to my 8.5 month daughter once and plan to read it, and other sequels, to her in the future. ( )

This book is one of my favorites. It has an excellent message that it doesn't matter what others say or think about you. ( )

This is a funny little story about a clever princess. It has been a favorite ever since I was little. ( )

Elizabeth is a beautiful princess who has to use courage and a lot of brains to outwit the dragon who has kidnapped her prince who turns out to be not-so-charming.

Well hello! Here's an assertive princess! Girl power avant-la-letre, in a kids book that's almost 40 years old...

To anyone who's been complaining we 'don't have enough strong female leads in stories', you've just been looking in the wrong places... ( )
