Overview

Following the publication of Rescue: Pop-Up Emergency Vehicles and Puppies, Kittens, and Other Pop-Up Pets, Matthew Reinhart turns his pop-up wizardry on two new subjects, dinosaurs and princesses. This young and very affordable pop-up series is perfect for these economic times.

A Princess Like Me features bright cut-paper collage artwork, just right for the young set. The book takes a young princess through her day—from waking up in her big pillowy bed, to dressing up in pretty dresses (not to mention her special tiaras), playing with her pet unicorn, and getting ready for a tea party with her other princess friends. All is brought to life with pop-ups, pull-tabs, lift-the-flaps, and more. The inside front and back covers will feature a bookplate and a coloring activity for added value.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A candy-coated burst of high-fructose goo, saturated with pink and equipped with pop-ups on every page. Reinhart lays it on with a trowel: "Good morning, good morning! What a busy day it will be. / There's so much to do for a princess like me!" Once the pet unicorn is fed, of course, planning a party tops the to-do list. Every spread or page features a pop-up, pull-tab or flap that, for instance, transforms the wide-eyed young royal's plain pink gown into something more froufrou and even pinker and, in the culminating tableau, poses her with a distinctly multicultural array of slightly less-dressy peers. Coloring pages inside the paper covers provide outlined fashion plates for dewy young designers. Hearts are, naturally, everywhere in the sunny, pastel-hued scenes. Insipid. (Pop-up/picture book. 4-7)
