Princesses Can Fix It!
The castle is crawling with wayward alligators, and the clueless king doesn’t know how to fix it. Lila, Margaret, and Harriet have lots of ideas, but their father won’t listen! According to him, the Princesses should be focusing on proper pursuits like drawing, jewelry, and music. When the three girls start falling asleep during the day, the Prince decides to investigate …
This STEAM-focused take on the classic fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses includes fun illustrations bursting with hilarious detail (and alligators), zany characters, and three inspiring princesses who know that they have what takes to save the day.
“A princess picture book fixed on smashing gender stereotypes.
…[with] ample humor for readers to enjoy…A slapstick resolution cements the princesses’ ingenuity while obliterating any perception of them as stereotypical ingénues.
A fix for tired gender roles.” — Kirkus Reviews
