Publishers Weekly
Fans of Michael Garland, whose titles include Mystery Mansion and The Mouse Before Christmas, may be interested in his illustrations for a Christian audience. I'd Be Your Princess: A Royal Tale of Godly Character by Kathryn O'Brien, illus. by Garland, describes a father and daughter imagining what they would do if they were king and princess. Garland's characteristically vibrantly detailed, slightly skewed spreads first introduce the pair in their contemporary home, then portray a no-holds-barred fairy tale setting. A Bible quote (from the New International Version) clarifies the message on each spread. For example, when the girl says they would wear jeweled crowns and long red capes, the passage from I Peter is, "Let your beauty be that of your inner self."

I have worked in an elementary school library for several years, & now I can say this is one of my FAVORITE children's books. What a touching, beautiful tale! Kathryn has definitely captured the true love, inspirtaion, & guidance of a father towards his daughter. I am the mother of 2 teenage boys & have had them read the book. Afterwards, we prayed that they would remember to take each opportunity, when they are blessed with their own children, to instill these wonderful morals and values. In closing, I thank Kathryn for bringing these words to life, it is as if my own father was here once again & 'I'm still his princess'!

As a Mom, a grandmother, a former teacher and counselor, and currently a preschool director, I was enchanted by this tale... a must for any 'male' to read to his princess!
