Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Tiana, Disney's latest princess, is the focus of this small tome for newly independent readers. All her life Tiana has dreamed of owning a restaurant in her native New Orleans and the night for the grand opening is finally upon her. Everything must be perfect for Jono La Creme, the food critic, intends to come to the opening. From the beginning things go wrong. Louis, the gator, cannot find his horn and won't be able to play his upbeat jazz. When the freshly baked beignets fall on the floor, Tiana fears there will not be time to make a fresh batch and she worries that her gumbo will not be up to expectations. Just before the guests arrive there is a power outage and Tiana must rely on candles for the ambiance. With the help of her husband, Prince Naveen, friend Charlotte, and her own belief in wishing upon a star, Tiana's opening is a great success. There are no surprises in this simple and happy ever after plot and the illustrations scattered throughout are pure Disney. The vocabulary and structure require at least a 3rd grade reading ability but it can be read aloud to a much younger audience. The price is rather steep considering the slight content.

You are way to young to even be thinking bout that kinda stuff. I am 14 and i dont even think bout that kinda stuff. And go wash out your mouth. Just because you can swear doesnt mean that you are cool. I dont swear cause swearing proves that a person doesnt have an education. There is a whole dictionary full of other words you could use. If this is the way your mama has raised you she should be ashamed of herself.

A good book

My little sister loves Tiana and the Princess and the Frog movie, so I got her this book, which she was really excited to read. We read it together. She was kind of uncertain whether she liked it or not. It has to do with Tiana being stressed out over her restaurant opening night and all the things that go wrong, and how you have to believe in yourself and just do the best you can. It had a fine moral point, but was, honestly, kinda boring. The pictures were very well drawn and we like the princess series like these very much, but we're looking forward to some more exciting adventures featuring Tiana, because surely there will be one? Still, gave this 4 stars, as it was a sweet story with a good moral point :)

My daughter is four and a half so I have to read these stories to her. I love the limited number of pictures because I can see in her expressions that she's imagining what the story looks like in her mind. We love the chapter books now, I know she'll enjoy reading them herself when she's older.
