Children's Book Review: You Can't Eat a Princess
You Can't Eat a Princess
Written by: Gillian Rogerson & Sarah McIntyre

When King Cupcake is kidnapped by hungry aliens, it's up to his feisty daughter, Princess Spaghetti, to save him from becoming their dinner. She blasts off into space to show those naughty aliens who's boss - and introduces them to a delicious alternative to people: chocolate! This hilarious romp will delight chocolate-lovers everywhere!
* Whenever I see a "princess" book at the library I usually take it out to read to my own "princess." While the pictures in the book were cute, the story itself was a little ridiculous. Aliens who like to eat people steal the king. But luckily for King Cupcake, his daughter, Princess Spaghetti saves him just in time. Princess Spaghetti is portrayed as a strong and creative girl which is nice. But the storyline itself was eh.
Family Rating: So-so.
