This bestselling modern classic features a princess who rescues a very snooty — and ungrateful — prince.
"This humorous story sends an assuring message to readers about women's (and girls) potential to break through sex-role stereotyping. This book, a pioneer of a slowly growing genre of non-traditional prince and princess stories, introduces a positive image of an empowered woman for children and adults alike."
(Electronic Magazine of Multicultural Education)
"...a classic feminist picture book"
