Summary
This year two girls will be selected as princesses in the town parade, and Grace can't wait to be one of them. It's the perfect opportunity to dress up--but how, exactly, should a princess costume look? Grace asks her teacher for help, and soon the whole class is learning that there's more to princesses than pink dresses and frills. From Kenya to China and from warriors to spies, princesses are a multicultural and multitalented bunch, and there are just as many kinds of happily ever afters--both for the royals and for Grace's community and its princess parade.

Mary Hoffman's picture books featuring this intrepid heroine have earned major critical acclaim; amongst other awards, Amazing Grace was a iReading Rainbow selection and a Booklist Editors' Choice. Grace's latest adventure is sure to delight her established fans--and win the hearts of many more!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After several chapter books, Hoffman returns to the original picture-book format for the series that started with Amazing Grace (1991). Grace's teacher announces that two girls will ride on the school's float as princesses. Initially excited about wearing a fairy-tale costume, Grace realizes that world folklore and history offer more varied and dynamic interpretations of the princess theme. On parade day, Grace and her classmates dress as royalty from different cultures; Grace wears West African Kente robes. Studded with questions worth discussing, the story rolls along smoothly, illustrated with bright paintings that picture events and Grace's thoughts. Information about Cinderella variants, historical princesses, and Kente cloth appended.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2008 Booklist"
