I couldn't wait to crack open this book, considering all the good things I had heard about it. I wasn't disappointed. Each artist featured in the book was given the license to interpret the classic princesses in their own way. Their styles ranged from abstract to kawaii to renaissance, all while capturimg the personality of their respective princesses. The book covers the five "main" princesses: Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, and Ariel. While I admit, I was excited to see these characters reinterpreted, I wish that there had been more art featuring lesser know princesses. For example, one artist seemed particularly intent on breaking the mold and featured both Tiger Lily (Peter Pan) and Kida (Atlantis: The Lost Empire). If the publisher decides to do a second volume, I hope that they feature more of the other princesses. Or even do a villains book! Other than that very small gripe, I'm quite happy with this book and would recommend it highly to others.

A Princess is more then just a pretty face, she is as brave as a lion, as clever as a fox, and as pure as snow. A Princess is all heart and loves unconditionally and is loved so in return. Many thousands of little girls around the world have grown up with the wish to become a princess. But being a Princess is not just having a gown, crown and castle, it is every little girl who has ever made a wish and believes in magic.Disney has been creating Princess since 1937 when the very first Princess, Snow White, was introduced to the world. Since then many other Princess have been imagined and re-imagined by Disney, all with their own story and all as unique as the girl wishing to be them. However different each Princess is the one thing all Disney Princess have in common is the ability to capture our imaginations as well as our hearts.The Art Of The Disney Princess brings together a number of Disney artists in order to celebrate the magical, virtuous and daring heroine that is the Disney Princess. From the iconic Snow White and Cinderella to the new Princess Tiana, the elusive Tiger Lily and even Maleficent, who manages to make an appearance or two.All the well know and loved princess are presented within this outstanding collection of beautiful and unique images, and with this book you can be a part of the magic. As every Princesses is unique so too is every piece of artwork captivated within this book. A stunning collection to treasure.

I don't recommend this book to any children or parents who want to buy it for their kids. The pictures are weird. I thought it would be the real art of disney princesses. However, all the princesses are like dark night evil souls. Not recommended at all!
