What do princesses really wear – and do? A little research uncovers princesses who are warriors, spies, sportswomen and artists. Somehow, now a pink floaty dress seems wrong.Nana saves the day with a stunning costume for Grace made from Gambian Kente cloth. The other children – girls and boys – are similarly inspired.

A welcome reappearance by Grace andfamily in this simple but engaging story which proves that a princess is what she makes herself to be, accompanied by warmly detailed illustrations of school and home.
