Princess in Training by Tammi Sauer

Princess in Training by Tammi Sauer is an adorable book about Princess Viola Louise Hassenfefer. Princess Viola isn't like other princesses. Instead of being prim and proper, Viola is a karate chopping, water diving, skateboarding princess. When an invitation to Princess camp comes along, Viola quickly decides to go-- so she can learn to be a proper princess. But before the day is done, she learns that sometimes, it's better to be yourself instead of what others think you should be.


I absolutely LOVE this book. The illustrations by Joe Berger are amazing and give the book a semi-comic book feel in a couple of places. I also adore the message in the book about being yourself. We don't all fit into the same mold and we shouldn't ever be afraid to be who we are.
