PRINCESS GRACE by Mary Hoffman, illustrated by Cornelius Van Wright and Ying Hwa-Hu (Dial)
"There's more than one way to be pretty," said Nana. "I suppose it depends what she does," said Aimee. "I don't know," said Grace. "What does a princess do, Nana?" "You tell me, darling," said Nana. But nobody could, except for wearing beautiful clothes and looking pretty. "That doesn't sound so interesting," said Grace. She liked having things to do.
In honor of the new children's book royalty, Newbery award-winning Laura Amy Schlitz (pictured above, being very surprised about her prize, thanks, Educating Alice!), how about a little princesspalooza?
