“Rules are meant to be broken in this laugh-out-loud picture book about staying true to yourself.
One little girl gets her greatest wish of becoming a princess – only to discover that the rules of royalty are no fun. She has to have perfect hair and eat daintily and dance gracefully — boring! So, she decides to make up her own rules… A delightfully subversive picture book that teaches girls to be themselves — clumsy dancing, crazy scribbling and all.”
This was soooo cute! I love McKenzie’s drawings and the ironic spin on Cinderella. Even if you dream of being a princess, sometimes it is more fun to do it your way. This is perfect if you want to teach your child to just be themselves.
