Grace is not the type of girl you would expect to be a princess! She is messy and a total non-conformist. She wants to attend Tall Towers Princess Academy to prove she can be a great princess even if she doesn't fit the stereotype.
Grace makes some wonderful and reliable friends and also has a spunky unicorn, but she comes across some not so nice "typical" princesses and instructors who tease her for her differences. Will goodness prevail?
This book was so much fun to read! I can't wait to read other titles in the series. The spunky Grace will really appeal to young girls, and who doesn't love a unicorn! Just the 3 rules stated on the back will entice readers:
Rules for being a princess:
1. Your name must be on the Fairy Godmother's list
2. You must always be elegant and graceful (a problem for Grace?)
3. A unicorn must choose you (That's my favorite!)
This humorous tale has an endearing main character, and the supporting characters help make Grace's experience a fun and exciting adventure. There is a positive message about self-confidence and loyalty.
Some vocabulary words, like deportment, pinafore and presume, might be too difficult for younger readers, but readers will still be able to follow along and enjoy the story despite not understanding a word or two.
