Overview

The plucky heroine of Princess Chamomile Gets Her Way finds out that really helping Melchior the gardener tend to the roses and the tulips is really hard work! She has dirt in her ears and dirt under her nails, and her dress is almost as muddy as Melchior's overalls. The garden is entirely too big—she needs a garden that is just her size, just her sort. Taking crayon in paw, the determined mouse princess sets out to plan the perfect garden, complete with a good hopscotch area, bushes for playing hide-and-seek, and, of course, a Reading Quietly place. When the king, queen, and Nanny Nettle—unsure about this not-quite-princesslike garden plan—finally give in, Chamomile and Melchior get to work. After months of cementing and hoeing, potting and planting, watering and growing, Chamomile's garden is finally ready—and as wonderful as she had imagined!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A princess's life can get boring as Chamomile discovers, but when this royal mouse-child gets an offer to DO something from Melchoir, the gardener, she throws herself into learning all she can about gardening. The first thing she learns is that gardening is hard work, and she, therefore, decides that her sort-of garden should be smaller and very special. No matter what she is doing , her mind is filled with gardening plans. She counters every objection from the members of the royal household and persuades all of them to allow her to move ahead with her plan. After months, the garden is complete and everyone finds that Princess Chamomile's sort-of garden is his or her sort-of garden. This is a second book about this princess who has a mind of her own and has what it takes to make a dream come true. The three-page foldout will delight readers of all ages. 2000, Penguin/Dutton Children's Books (Anderson Press Ltd), Ages 4 to 8, $16.99. Reviewer: Margarette Reid
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The clever little mouse who made her debut in Princess Chamomile Gets Her Way (Dutton, 1999) is back. The diminutive princess enjoys helping Melchior in the kitchen gardens, learning "how to tell the difference between the weeds that were to be pulled and the little plants that weren't," but the work is too hard, so she decides what she really needs is "more of a my-sort-of garden." The energetic rodent sets to work, drawing out exactly what her very own garden needs, including "Wildflowers for lots of butterflies" and, of course, a "reading quietly place." Her only obstacle is convincing the queen and her nanny, who thinks that "gardening is not princesslike." As soon as they agree, Melchior and the princess get to work. Finally, Chamomile announces that the creation "isn't just my sort of garden. It's everyone's sort of garden-." A good choice to read alone or aloud, this well-paced story illustrated with detailed pastel watercolors, including a drawing of Chamomile's plan and final three-page foldout, will have readers thinking that Chamomile's garden is their sort of garden, too.-Margaret Rhoades, Orange County Library System, Orlando, FL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
