Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Princess Puppy had all the luxuries of a princess, including a palace, royal furniture, and fancy gowns for every day of the week. What she did not have was a friend. One day, Princess Puppy meets and invites Molly to play with her. Molly suggests playing ball or jumping rope, but Princess Puppy insists on playing Princess in the Palace. She has Molly act as the lady-in-waiting and compels her to perform different tasks, such as getting the Princess' slippers and carrying her cape. After a while, Molly does not care to wait on Princess Puppy anymore. She goes outside to jump rope, play ball, and ride her bike. Princess Puppy does not think Molly's activities are very princess-like, so she does not participate. Molly tells the princess that she can find another friend. That evening, Princess Puppy decides that she really wants to be friends with Molly. She comes up with a plan for them to become friends again. This provides an opportunity for children to examine and discuss the give-and-take in a friendship, in a popular, princess themed context. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

PreS-K—A gentle, sweet picture book that successfully delivers a life lesson. Princess Puppy is a proper princess. She only knows how to do things a princess should do, like polishing her crown, wearing fancy dresses, taking piano lessons, and reading quietly. While she enjoys her organza-filled life, she is lonely. Luckily, Molly shows up to play. Unfortunately, Princess Puppy's version of playing is to make Molly be her servant. When the pup protests and leaves, Princess Puppy is upset. Later, she realizes that she is in the wrong and gives up her fancy dress for some good fun with Molly, like bike riding and jumping rope. Girls will adore this book, from the pink cover to the sweet illustrations of cute puppies in dresses and tiaras. Pair this with Jane O' Connor's "Fancy Nancy" books (HarperCollins) or Ford's Ballet Kitty (Boxer Bks., 2007) for an extra-girlie storytime.—Jasmine L.
