The Worst Princess

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Review

"Some day," she sighed, "my prince will come,

But I wish he'd move his royal bum."

Princess Sue is no ordinary princess. She gets bored hanging around in her tower, waiting for her handsome prince to arrive - and is overjoyed when he at last turns up to rescue her. But having freed Sue from her tower, the prince isn't too pleased when he discovers that she would rather ride horses and battle dragons than stay indoors wearing a pretty dress.

With a funny rhyming text by Anna Kemp and delightfully humorous illustrations by 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrator Sara Ogilvie, this entertaining picture book offers a refreshingly tongue-in-cheek spin on the conventional fairy tale princess.
