Princess Smartypants and the Missing Princes by Babette Cole
‘Princess Smartypants is a very unusual princess. Most princesses wear pretty dresses, lots of make-up and their main mission is to marry a rich handsome prince and live happily ever after. But Princess Smartypants is very happily unmarried. She is quite content to be a ‘Ms’ and governs her wacky kingdom of Totaloonia all on her own with huge success - and without the unwelcome help of any dumb princes.’
Princess Smartypants is happy enough looking after her outrageous pets and keeping company with her best friend and handyman, Eric the Annihilator. But when he arrives at her door, having mysteriously found items of male clothing, she realises the other Princesses might need her help.
Recognising the garments as property of the Princes – the fiancés of Cinderella, Snow White and Rapunzel – Princess Smartypants sets off (with Eric) to find and rescue the men wherever they might be! But will her bravery and wit be enough to save the young royals – especially when fierce trolls are involved?
. -- Lauren Maidman Reading Zone - Teacher Review For children beginning to read independently, this is an exciting adventure and the fact that they may already know the main character from picture books may encourage them to choose this. -- Kathy Slater Reading Zone - Teacher Review
