Comments for The Secret Lives of Princesses

The Secret Lives of Princesses: 10/13/12

 cover art (Lechermeierk goes to Powells)The Secret Lives of Princesses by Philippe Lechermeier is presented as an encyclopedia to all things princess. It includes biographies of princesses, like Claire Voyant, Tangra-La, and Babbling Brooke to name a few. There are also pages about castles, elephants (for travel) and other miscellany.

For each entry there is a gorgeous, intricate and whimsical illustration. These paintings are so amazing that we could only get through about five pages a night as we were spending most of our time examining each page.

I originally checked this book out to read to my daughter before bed. She was going through a phase where the only books she wanted to read were princess stories. What I didn't expect was to have my son joining us for story time. He loved the book as much as she did.

Five stars
