Princess Paloozaby Joy Allen
Sporting tutus, butterfly wings, cowboy boots or soccer jerseys, each of these twelve little girls is ready to have a day of fun together-a Princess Palooza! And what could be better than a day at Princess Park-a wonderful playground with a castle, moat and carriage. It's the perfect place for the girls to let their imaginations run wild as they run, jump and dance.
Joy Allen's cheerful verse and vibrant art celebrates the joy of active play and the princess inside every little girl, and the enclosed paper crown will delight princesses everywhere.
A scant, slapdash tale of princess play told in lumbering rhyme.
In verse that doesn't exactly fall trippingly from the tongue, Allen describes six princesses traveling to Princess Park for a Princess Palooza Party. When they arrive at the park, the girls spot six more princesses who are on their way to join them. Ballerina Princess teaches the girls a dance, Cowgirl Princess leads a game of double Dutch and the princesses swing and cavort until the sun starts to set. "Now it's getting dark, time to gather wands and tassels / And march on home to their own Princess castles." And what are they going to do tomorrow? Why, the same thing, of course! The watercolor illustrations are a bit more engaging and entertaining than the story. They depict a diverse array of princesses, and though the majority of them sport frilly dresses and heels, there is one decked out in a baseball outfit with a crown emblazoned on her cap.
Not even the glitter on the cover or the hot-pink cut-out Princess Palooza crown inside can save this one.(Picture book. 4-8)
