This book does NOT have positive princess messaging 21 août 2013
Par Virgina Colson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Warning to mothers who care about message: Avoid this wolf-in-sheep's clothing.

If you love princesses, and are just looking for something a little different, then it's cute enough. But if you are like me, and you don't love princesses, yet have a princessy daughter whose spirit you don't want to crush by forbidding all things pink and glittery so are trying to find her some alternative princesses.... you will gack.

I had high hopes that this book would undermine the female stereotypes that go along with princesses---the pink, the love of shoes and shopping, the dream of big castle, big ring and Mr. Right, the passivity, the emphasis on wealth and consumerism. But it emphasizes those things at least as much as our ordinary princess programming, if not a little more. Programming like Disney's "Brave" and even "Sofia the First" are more levelheaded and less ickily gendered than this book.

The first story, "The Clumsy Princess" by Lou Kuenzler is the most maddening, as it falls into the Hollywood cliche of making a girl likeable because she's a klutz. This is the first time this annoying stereotype has entered our home, and my daughter thinks it's just hilarious that the girl is bumping and tripping and falling all over herself. The basic plot is that the klutzy princess is supposed to present a handkerchief to the knight who wins a tournament, but she doesn't want to, and instead falls into a suit of armor and ends up winning herself. This is insidious. The message is that princesses don't compete; they wins without trying, by accident, despite themselves. It's a terrible thing to teach little girls, who already are steered away from confident achievement and sports. Of course the book is marketed as being pro-sports.

Story number two is about a princess who wants a bigger castle and fancier clothes, but when she switches places with a cousin who has those things, discovers that it's boring to be dressed up all the time and that she prefers home. It's ok, but it still feels like a story essentially about wanting a big castle and fancy clothes.

Number three, "The Princess and the P.E.," like the first, is about a princess who sucks at sports. My daughter has already osmosed that "sports aren't for girls," not, I fear, to her long-term benefit. At the princess school, girls play boys, and this princess is so inept, she singlehandedly sinks her side, and the boy teams always win. ('Cause boys are just naturally good at sports, right?) Until, that is, a magic frog (prince in disguise) teaches her to try harder by imagining something she really wants---SHOES! (Eeek! Shoegasm!!) She does, and becomes a star. (All it takes is the right shoes, ladies! Buy some more.) The frog turns into a prince but she doesn't want to "walk away into the sunset" with him because he's sweaty, slimy and wearing gym clothes. Some messaging in here is ok--trying harder, not choosing the prince if you don't like him--but again there's the taint that princesses don't do sports, and don't like things like sweat and gym clothes.

And story three and several others play with the culmination of marriage, which, though a lovely thing in some cases, isn't something I want to program my girl to believe is the end-of-story. Number four and six are both also marriage plots, one with a passive princess and no redeeming qualities (it even slags on poets, with vaguely anti-intellectual aplomb), and another where the princess supposedly subverts the tradition by setting out to find her own prince, ending with an illustration of a woman in a room jammed to the rafters with suitors.

I'm omitting to mention one very cute story, "Double Dragons" by Enid Richemont, that's in fact just what I'd want, about a princess who goes out and defeats a dragon. Unfortunately it's way too little considering the rest of the book.

And I also should mention--ultimate poison chalice--that my daughter adores the book, and wants to read it multiple times a day.

Finally, a princess book with intelligent and strong princesses a girl can actually look up to. 23 novembre 2010

Though the Disney princesses are popular, they all send young girls a similar message. You must be beautiful and passive in order to get Prince Charming. This book presents tales with intelligent, strong princesses that are far from passive. They give girls like my daughter a different message. You can be beautiful AND strong, and sometimes even save Prince Charming instead of waiting to be saved. Princesses can be independent and still attract a handsome suitor.

Fun for kids and adults 13 avril 2009
Par Abby - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The stories in this collection have the charm of fairy tales with a large dose of humor and a good bit more accessibility for kids. Girls today may want to read about princesses, as they have for ages... but it is fun to see the princess protagonists in a contemporary context with modern morals. In addition, the creative use of typesetting and large, vivid pictures make the book a unique visual treat.

Princess book with a twist 2 décembre 2008
Par S. Fritz - Publié sur
Format: Relié
As the mother of a 3 1/2 year old girl ,I am getting kind of tired reading Disney Princess stories every night. This book is a welcome change. The drawings are wonderful, the stories are great. Best of all my daughter loved them.

Great new material if you're sick of the usual princess tale 5 octobre 2009
Par Girls "R" Us - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Cute! A nice change from the usual princess formula. I have three little girls and they LOVE this book. These are the kind of stories that have just enough twist in them that I can enjoy the whimsical humor even after having read them a gazillion times - which means no groaning from mommy when this book is selected yet AGAIN for bedtime stories. I would definitely recommend this to anybody looking for new material a little more off the beaten path from the usual Cinderella/Snow White/Sleeping Beauty type stuff to entertain their own little "princesses."
