Petunia is NOT a princess. She doesn't want to be fancy or frilly and she certainly doesn't want another little princess moving in next door. But, when the newest neighbor likes pink and climbing trees, maybe Petunia can make a new friend and stay true to her self.

Petunia is a little girl who lives in a house that is not a castle and she does not want to be a princess. Petunia loves wearing her favorite sweatshirt, not fancy, frilly dresses like the other princesses. Petunia likes to play outside and get messy. The other princesses do not play like Petunia they want to dance with their princes, so Petunia plays by herself. When a new girl moves in next door, Petunia is excited that she might have a friend, but Penelope is a Princess too. What Petunia finds out is that even though Penelope dresses like a princes, she likes to play outside and get messy too. In fact when Petunia gives it a try, she figures out that dancing can be fun. Penelope and Petunia become best friends. What a great story. We learn that it is okay to be different, little girls do not have to be princesses but can be messy and love sports and playing outside, that we should not judge people by appearances and we should give things a try because we might like them. This is a story that all kids need to read. It is great to be an individual and do what makes you happy. There were simple colourful illustrations that help to tell the story and show the emotion on the faces of the characters. A great book for family, school and class libraries. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

My oldest daughter is much like Petunia, and I'm glad to finally find a book that doesn't make her feel like the only of her kind. Her little sister is just like the neighbor, so it's absolutely perfect for us.

My daughter & I really enjoyed “Petunia, the Girl who was NOT A Princess”. It was adorable! We especially liked the neighbor because she’s very much like us! This book is extra special. There’s nothing wrong with all of the princesses running around – unless you’re not like them. This book gives all children, but especially young ladies, a very adorable reminder that it’s ok not to be like everyone else! More… Author: M.R.
