She has to fight bunnies! There is nothing more adorable than a horde of ravening bunnies: they’re cute locusts. But bunnies aren’t always safe, as Monty Python and former president Jimmy Carter both know.

A cute story.

Very simple text with interesting illustrations. I liked that there were multiple things going on plot-wise, which rounded out the work.

I will definitely check out the sequel.

So many books really play to the expected gender roles of young boys and girls, with pretty clear divisions by color, hobbies, accessories, etc. This book gives us a heroine who is out saving folks dressed all in black like Zorro, but, also, says that the pink isn't automatically bad just because it is girly.

 

Now I want to go fight monsters.

 

Pham's artwork, by the way, is fabulous. It captures a retro vibe from picture books of the 60s, but without feeling dated or self-consciously ironic. It suits the Princess very well.

 

Library copy.

Who said princesses can't wear black?*
Who said princesses can't fight monsters?**
Who said princesses can't befriend goat boys?**


All questions aside, this is a very cute book with charming illustrations that I would have adored as a wee lass. You really quite quite beat a spunky princess defying all expectations, a "unicorn" named Frimplepants, The Goat Avenger, and some shockingly polite monsters. Can't wait to see more of these characters!

 

Respect the goats.
