This is one of my most favorite children's books! The illustrator, Diana Magnuson, has excellent illustrations. But it's the message of the story by Angela Elwell Hunt that really hits home. I've read this story many times to both boys and girls in children's church classes and they all seem to enjoy the lesson. The True Princess comes straight from the heart. The story is all about learning to live as the King wants us to and not as selfish beings. The princess learns to bake, clean up and to laugh at her self. This is a wonderful story with a great lesson for children and adults alike. It seems to be out of print now. But if you can find one on EBay, Amazon or another place be sure to purchase it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
