The Truly Brave Princesses
Dolores Brown, Sonja Wimmer (Illustrator), Nubeocho (OCTOBER) Hardcover $17.95 (44pp), 978-841712338-3
Meet Princess Alice, a surfing blogger; Princess Kristen, an aspiring superheroine; Princess Nin, a firefighting city gardener; and many other princesses in this colorful tribute to the beautiful diversity, strength, and inspiration found in women of all ages, shapes, and walks of life. They are dentists, librarians, singers, and lawyers; single, divorced, married, and widowed; adventurous and outgoing, quiet and reflective, creative and practical. Princesses are all around us and are easy to recognize, the book suggests, even if they are not wearing their crowns.
