    One thought on “The ABC of Fabulous Princesses”

    1. I am smitten by the gorgeous illustrations and the alliterative poems about each princess. Not sure how my 3-year-old niece, who is currently into princesses, will feel about it since these don't look like the Disney princesses we're so familiar with. But I can't wait to read some of the pages to her. Probably one at a time will do for a short attention span.

    2. An opulently illustrated, visually enticing alphabet book probably better suited to readers already well-versed in their ABCs due to the complexity of the text.

    3. This book wasn't what I expected. I saw it on the shelf at the library and mistakenly assumed it would be somewhat factual (actual princesses from history depicted fancifully - as birds). Unfortunately, it was entirely fiction. There were 26 princesses, each with a name that began with a letter of the English alphabet. Each princess was a prospective bride for Prince William. In the book's beginning, the reader is told that Prince William is weary of even thinking of choosing from among them and [...]

    4. The stunning illustrations of this ABC book are filled with intriguing details, and the text accompanying each princess is fun to say since each blurb is filled with words or syllables that start with that particular letter. Despite the inclusion of the word princess in the title, this one is not intended for early readers since the text is far too advanced for them, and much of the clever use of words would go right over their heads. The princesses are part of a group of 26--one for each letter [...]

    5. It's a shame that some libraries shelve all the concept books together in one place - because many ABC books, including this one, appeal so much to the junior aficionado of wordplay and vocabulary. And yet you'd probably never guide a verbally precocious third grader to this section of 123's and rainbow blocks."Princess Elmira comes from Ethiopia. She is extravagant, empathetic, and enormously emancipated. She enjoys eating eel with eggplant and endive. She plays the English horn and engages in [...]

    6. Prince William must be lucky to get all those cool gifts. Too bad he has to break hearts and choose a princess. My favourite is T. Little a liked Z and S. A fun tongue twisting big word crazy names book. I would read it to big vocabulary loving children and certainly not a curious child unless you have pre read and looked up all the places, words, and things.

    7. This is a unique alphabet book that would be better for older children. It contains a slightly overwhelming amount of text and new vocabulary, which would be challenging for very young readers. Better for those with longer attention spans, or perhaps to be read in very small amounts.

    8. Bookseller: LaurenHieronymous Bosch'esque illustrationsd words words words!lovely words:judiciousjoyfuljambalayajamboreesA feast for those who love words tripping luxuriously off the tongue.

    9. It's not my favorite art style (purely personal preference), so I took off stars for that, but I really liked the words. Great alliteration, and humor!

    10. Age range: 4-8Literacy skill: Vocabulary and letter knowledgePrincesses, lots of synonyms, and the alphabet.
