“Royalty does not karate-chop.” –Madame Gertrude
Princess Viola is great at skateboarding and karate-chopping, but she’s lousy at the royal wave, walk, and waltz. The king and queen are not pleased. What’s a princess to do? Attend the skill-polishing Camp Princess, of course. In the end, it’s a good thing Viola is made of tougher stuff. Who else will save the day when the green dragon comes along? Joe Berger’s zippy illustrations use comic book–style panels and show off ZIP! ZUP! ZOOM! sound effects. This sweet, funny picture book is just the ticket for spunky princess-loving girls who can appreciate a glittery book jacket!

I bought htis book for my niece for Christmas, I purchased it because it was not the traditional Disney Princess that seem to over run all little girl books these days. I love that the Princess is true to herself and even though placed in a situation where she is being asked to conform she shows being different can be a benefit The mix of comic book out takes as well as the traditional story book makes the book very appealing. .
