The Perfect Father's Day Gift
Carmela LaVigna Coyle has trumped her own first picture book of the young girl who originally wondered if fashion dictates allowed for princesses to wear hiking boots. This time around the theme is a great hike with Dad. But, on their delightful outing, sure to bring smiles to the face of any parent, the young heroine needs to know if princesses are allowed to stop and smell flowers, what to do when a bee lands on the end of a royal¿s nose, can princesses save all the rocks they find plus climb boulders? Will lucky princesses see rabbits and deer? Do princesses really kiss frogs? AND, a really BIG QUESTION is what happens when princesses get hungry and tired? A complete day¿s adventure of a father and daughter is neatly penned by Coyle and brightly illustrated by Mike and Carl Gordon. The best parts are saved for last. The princess meets a cowboy with his Mom in tow and even better still, the princess has her picture taken with Dad by her faithful and comical canine who plunges into every adventure with exuberant enjoyment. The packaging of the book is terrific. A special plastic insert allows for young princesses to forever recall their hikes with their most favorite prince ¿ DAD ¿thanks to an enclosure for a real hiking photograph. Presto! Do Princesses Really Kiss Frogs? becomes a scrapbook as well as a delightful storybook. A scavenger hunt rounds out a terrific book for a father and daughter to share both now and for years and years to come. Just imagine the joy, many years from now, when the same little princess has found her lifelong Prince and on her wedding day, Dad and the Princess take a special moment to re-read this wonderful book together at least one more time!

FOR THE VERY YOUNG PRINCESSES
Those who fondly remember the precocious pony-tailed little princess in 'Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots?' will be delighted with the return of the questioning young miss as she and her Dad prepare for a hike. As usual, she's full of questions, asking what she should wear, wondering how she'll carry her water. Then, when they are finally on their way, she busies herself exploring every creek, boulder, and field. The story of their trek is told in lilting rhyme, 'Will princesses get to see rabbits and deer? You never know what they might see and hear.' Short on narrative, the book abounds with colorful double page paintings by award winning artist Mike Gordon as he follows the pair throughout their day. I'd recommend this for the very young who are more interested in pictures than words. - Gail CookeWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
