"This will enter the rotation of bedtime favorites." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Marvelous for anyone with a wry sense of humor, There's a Princess in the Palace deserves a place in every library." -School Library Journal, starred review

"Within a graphic-novel format, the tales of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, the Frog Prince and the Princess and the Pea develop familial and hilarious interconnections while retaining the stories' traditional structures... Smartly hysterical." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Delightfully fractured even after reconstructive surgery, this run-on fairy tale would find itself on the shelf between War on Peas and One Hundred Years of Sillitude... if it wasn't so much fun to read." -David Macauley, creator of, among many other clever books, The Way Things Work

In this hilarious collection of princess stories with a distinctive spin, there's Cinderella, who was, though you may not know it, Sleeping Beauty's mom; Sleeping Beauty, who didn't fall asleep because of the prick of a needle―it was sheer boredom; Snow White and her diminutive friends―Les, Lou, Sam, Hank, Nat, Myron, and Bethanne; the princess of frog fame; and the princess of pea fame.
