Princess Bess is stuffed into one outfit after another for each occasion throughout the day, but her favorite clothes are...her underwear. Sweet illustrations (a bit like Fancy Nancy, but on a white background so less cluttered) accompany the rhyming text.

Princess Bess has a wealth of beautiful outfits in this rhyming picture-book from author Margery Cuyler and illustrator Heather Maione. For every event she attends, from tea with the king to a fancy evening ball, she has a different set of clothing. But her favorite outfit of all, the one she wears to bed, is just for her...

With a fun, read-aloud text - "Princess Bess had loads of clothes / made with satin, snaps and bows, / buckles, ribbons, silk and lace, / pearly buttons sewn in place" - and sparkly illustrations, Princess Bess Gets Dressed makes for a good story-time selection, especially for young children who enjoy dressing up, or who like a bit of glitter on their books. A light, cream puff of a picture-book, with an amusing conclusion that features a perennial childhood favorite - underwear! ( )

Great illustrations and a very catchy text. Very cute tale of a princess in her finest clothes who really prefers to be in her underwear. ( )
