Amusing for the childreen or tweens but you could see the end and the morale of the story coming from miles ahead. A nice little story though, especially for girls.

I downloaded Newfangled Fairy Tales Book #2 "The Girl Who Wanted to be a Princess"for free with my Kindle App. This was a sample book to the full collection of ten contemporary fairy tales is the second in the critically acclaimed series. Michelle Koszlowski is unhappy with her life and even though she is embarrassed by her parents has no problem always asking them for money to buy what she wants. She didnt like her house, cleaning her room or even baby-sitting her little brother she in fact hated any kind of work. One night after throwing a fit and exclaiming she wanted to be a princess, amazingly her parents reveal to her that in fact she could get all the wonderful thins she longs for, as they have well-off family in Poland who would love to meet her. After finishing the rest of the school year she set off to Poland to live the life she feels she deserves. It took no time at all for her to find out that the finer things in life come with more responsibility of your actions and that she would be in tutoring, training and required to eat " finer foods". She did not like this one bit and ended up going back home within a few day.

In my opinion I didnt like the way the message was delivered in this story.It seem to me there was a spoiled little girl that thought she didnt have to do anything, who was lucky enough to get a chance to go see what the life she thought she deserved was really like and then didnt like that either. I appreciated the message though

I love the idea of "newfangled fairy tales," and I admire the desire to teach contentment at home. However, I found it difficult to relate to the main character or feel any sympathy for her "plight." She makes childish demands of her parents, refuses to help with simple chores, snubs her little brother, and in general acts like a spoiled brat. She then visits relatives who live in a castle in Poland and balks at the expectation that she behave with civility and eat the food that's offered. In the course of the story she learns to appreciate her parents and brother, which is commendable, but the whole thing lacks warmth and humor.

This was a cute short story with a good lesson: the grass is not always greener on the other side. For the young lady protagonist, "normal" life appears to seem sufficient. She has little appreciation for her lot, and takes her family and routines for granted (a familiar story for many of today's youth)!

I wept give away the whole book, but after proofreading, I will be reading it to my daughters.

*I received this story at a discounted rate in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this book because it was well written, easy to read and understand, and the overall moral was a good lesson for kids to learn. I believe the author over exaggerates every situation witch makes it extremely easy to visualize the situation and understand the moral with ease. I think that is great for kids as they should understand without needing further explanation.
The parts I thought could be a little better: since it is all exaggerated, it comes off a little negative. The father "explodes" at his daughter, who refuses to do ANYTHING and has a major ATTITUDE. It lacks the exaggeration of funny, or happy to counter the negative. Even thought the girl learns her lesson in the end, in the beginning I think she actually gets rewarded for her bad behavior by being sent to be a princess.
Overall, this was a great lesson for kids to learn. It was a free kindle book for me and I even plan to read it to the younger than 7yr old children. As I stated it's over exaggeration makes it easy for the kids to understand so I think even younger children could learn something from this.
It's well written, engaging, and I generally enjoyed it.

This is a quintessential "grass isn't always greener" story. The main character, Michelle, is a spoiled, egocentric, materialistic, lazy girl who expects her parents to do and buy everything for her. Upon learning of her royal heritage, her parents send her to live in a castle, where she lasts less than 24 hours, because she refuses to eat what is offered, dress as she should, or behave with manners. Of course, she realizes that treating her parents like slaves was the easier route, so she decides to go back home. I guess it's supposed to deliver the message, aside from the grass isn't always greener spiel, is to be grateful for what you already have. I just wish Michelle would have had actually had to earn something to show her changed ways rather than simply ending the story with her demands being met just like the story began.

I received the kindle version for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All views, experiences, and opinions are solely my own.
