A TITLE AND ALL THE TRIMMINGS
While some young girls may dream of being a princess, wonder how many realize the attendant obligations. Certainly, there are probably quite a few perks to being a royal, however, it may be a bit of a trade-off as some princesses find that their lives are pretty much programmed for them. Such is the case with Princess Bess.
She is busy from dawn to dusk and each occasion calls for a change of clothes. Fortunately, she has an enormous wardrobe, which is described as:
"Princess Bess has loads of clothes
made with satin, snaps and bows,
buckles, ribbons, silk, and lace,
pearly buttons sewn in place."
Lucky girl? Well, not quite because what she really wants to wear is not ever part of her official costume.
Heather Maisone's delightful pastel illustrations prettily detail this young lady's days, while author Cuyler relates the story in lilting rhyme. Youngsters will enjoy a peek at a palace, those who live there, and those who visit. Perhaps they'll also decide how very fortunate they are to quite often wear exactly what they want.
