This fun book shows that even a 'princess' can get down and dirty.

Humorous illustrations add charm, and for parents who have princesses of their own, the refreshing perspective on acceptable princess behavior is a godsend.

After a four-year hiatus, Coyle and the Gordons are back with another Do Princesses...? title that will have readers laughing as the little girls go through Mommy's clothing drawers for dress-up items, strew crumbs all over the living room floor, and have a pot-and-pan jam in the backyard. The illustrations (e.g., a bewigged pup gazing in a mirror, little brother trying to escape his stroller as he rides by caged monkeys at the zoo), drawn by Mike and colored by his son, Carl, are absolutely hysterical and beg for a second look.

Do Princesses Have Best Friends Forever? is a delightful illustrated book about two girls who spend a day in creative, fun play activities together. Whimsical pastel illustrations make the verse play date descriptions hilariously real.
