Children's Book Review: Princess Palooza
Written by: Joy Allen
Published by: Putnam Juvenile, 2011
Sporting tutus, butterfly wings, cowboy boots or soccer jerseys, each of these twelve little girls is ready to have a day of fun together-a Princess Palooza! And what could be better than a day at Princess Park-a wonderful playground with a castle, moat and carriage. It's the perfect place for the girls to let their imaginations run wild as they run, jump and dance.
Joy Allen's cheerful verse and vibrant art celebrates the joy of active play and the princess inside every little girl, and the enclosed paper crown will delight princesses everywhere.
* This picture book stars twelve princesses, each dressed very differently but all enjoying their time playing together. The book is told in rhyme with colorful illustrations of the princesses having fun together. There's not a lot to the story and it ended up being a quick read.
Family Rating: So-so.
