I loved this book as a child and still do at 22. It's a story told from a little girl's point of view, and she is 'really a princess'. The authors have combined the right amount of fun, imagination and love. It's a perfect bedtime or anytime story. And it would make a great gift for any little girl five and up. I plan on giving a copy to my niece because she is really a princess, too.
