The Monster Princessby D. J. MacHale, Alexandra Boiger
Lala dwells in a cave that lies deep below the ground, worlds away from the castle where three beautiful princesses live. She is the best krinkle-nut digger by far, but she longs for more: the dresses, the parties, the royal life. Up, up, up Lala climbs and sneaks into the castle. She tries on the princesses’ gowns…and is caught. But the princesses dress Lala up and let her attend a ball. She stumbles. She bumbles. She is laughed at. Can Lala find it in her heart to forgive the girls who tricked her? Will Lala find out what it means to be a real princess?
"Lala's fluffy green hair, eager grin accented by two delicate fangs, and irrepressible spirit make her a creature kids will root for, even before she uses her monstery skills to save the princesses from a scary beast."—Booklist

we picked up this book not really knowing what it was about, but my daughter is not fond of disney princesses, so we thought this would be more appealing to her. luckily, it was a wonderful book with an excellent message. i've read it to my children and i've read it to their first and second grade classes. both boys and girls liked the story and illustrations. the nice thing is that the "monster" part makes it more accessible to boys (and non-princess lovers) lol.
My daughter loves this book. She asks me to read it to her almost every night.
