Overview

The Secret Lives of Princesses by Philippe Lechermeier, Rébecca Dautremer

Go beyond Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella! Some princesses are well-known to all children—but others, equally magical (and sometimes, a lot funnier) have remained anonymous, mysterious, and far from the fairy-tale crowd.

Now these captivating ladies are finally stepping out of the shadows where they’ve remained hidden for far too long. With wit, sublime humor, and beautiful art, The Secret Lives of Princesses introduces a bevy of royal daughters to the court of young readers. While it alludes to some of their more famous sisters, this large and lusciously illustrated compendium presents such unique and unforgettable characters as the petite Princess Claire Voyant, who can see very far into tomorrow (but muddles her predictions); Princess Oblivia, who forgets everything and misses all her appointments; Princess Tangra-La, who does the tango, the fandango, and any dance that comes her way; and Princess Babbling Brooke, who chatters on and on about everything and nothing. Plus, you’ll learn about such princessy matters as the language of fans; coats of arms; and how not to offend dangerous fairies who cast evil spells.

Poetic, often humorous, and always enchanting, this is the perfect collection for princess-loving girls who long for more than just the traditional fairy tale.

I purchased this item after seeing it on the shelf at the local BN. The artwork is simply adorable! I can just randomly pick a page and I will stare at its prettiness for a few minutes. My niece is getting a copy as well as my childhood best friend for Christmas, it is definitely cheap considering for $10.97, you get 89 pages of art and a glittery pink cover. :P This US edition is a lot bigger than the original, French publication (I loved it so much I had to buy the original version from Amazon France). P.S. I'm a 23 year old woman.

The art in this book is so amazing. I bought a copy for my niece, but I plan to buy one for myself, too. The art and storytelling made me feel like I'm never too old to imagine life as a princess.

She has a wide array of reading selections. She is now reading a book called, Smitty's Cave Adventures. It's a great book!
