Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-Little Princess is determined to bring home all of the big trophies at school. She tries her hardest in each subject, agonizing at the chalkboard over math problems, flinging paint onto her canvas in the art room, struggling to compose a poem, and causing an explosion in the science lab. Alas, each trophy goes to someone else. "It's not fair," she sobs. But one small trophy still stands on the shelf, unnoticed. To her utmost delight, she wins it for "TRYING THE HARDEST. fair and square!" The quirky pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations, which are replete with amusing details, enliven the simple, sweet story. The protagonist's facial expressions are particularly comical. Fans will cheer on Little Princess in her quest for victory.-Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA (c) Copyright 2012.
