princess-bubbleI truly enjoy all the princess madness… the gowns, the glitter, the tiaras. I love watching my girls dress up and I’ll be totally honest, I once tried to squeeze myself into one of their gowns. Turns out, I am not a toddler size 5.

But I just loathe those needy princesses. You know the ladies. Cinderella, Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel and a few others who must be saved by a prince to live happily ever after.

This is why I avoid reading my kids the princess stories and they don’t watch the movies. I want better role models for my girls. A bit more “Free To Be You And Me” for their glittery imaginations.

And finally, Princess Bubble showed up. It’s about time. This gal is no damsel in distress. She travels the world, helps others and finds “happily ever after” before her prince ever shows up. It’s not anti-Prince Charming. It’s just that Princess Bubble  knows how to put on her “thinking crown” and take advantage of life’s amazing opportunities.

The book is geared for all ages and I definitely found myself laughing at a couple lines. I can’t wait to read more of her next adventures.

    I’ve said for years that the era of “Drama Queen” and “diva” will come back to bite us all in the ass.  SO glad someone was quick on their marketing feet.

    I’m not a big fan of the princess stuff either – but Paper Bag Princess is my fave. There are also some great princess tales by Gail Carson Levine (author of Ella Enchanted – a much better book than movie) that are really good too.

    This one doesn’t quite grab me – probably because the fairy godmother says that “true happiness is found by loving God” and I’d rather my daughter find her own spirituality without any pressure or judgment.

    I’m glad you brought that up about the “true happiness is found by loving God” because that is the one line that I did not love in the book. It should have been left out. I agree.

    Some other good ones are:

    Cinderedna; Once Upon a Princess and a Pea; and Rumpelstiltskin’s Daughter. Not sure of the authors, but most libraries have them available.

    Here’s another vote for The Paper Bag Princess! Not a princess themed book, but also very empowering is The Dot by Peter Reynolds – just the sweetest story. I had tears in my eyes the first time I read it.
