The Lovereading4Kids comment

Full of lively illustrations, this is an entertaining story about three princesses, each with a special talent but each of whom wants to be good at everything! Princess Allie can bake, Princess Mellie can garden and Princess Libby can build. They are all very good at what they do, but when they each try another job, everything goes very wrong indeed. Luckily, they all realise that it is best to stick to what you are good at!

Synopsis

Princesses are Not Perfect by Kate Lum & Sue Hellard

These aren't the kind of princesses who sit around doing nothing - they're very busy every day... gardening, baking and making things. But one day, one of the princesses wants a change from her job - she wants to bake. After all, she's good at everything. But soon the princesses learn that specialisation is itself a skill and, actually, being a jack of all trades isn't quite as good as being a master of one. A fresh and jaunty picture book featuring three high-spirited princesses and their trusty housekeeper, Mrs Blue.

Reviews

'A refreshing departure from the archetypal precious princess'

'Very funny [and] thought-provoking'
