¡Qué fastidio ser princesa!

(What a pain to be a princess!) Book not yet available in English


Maybe no one has ever wondered how hard and complicated it is to be a princess. To follow a few strict rules, not to be able to express yourself as you want, to go out and play whenever you want, or the expectation to be always beautiful and ready for palace receptions, are some of the inconveniences that a princess encounter. So that’s what this beautiful tale tells us, from the other side of the story.


This is a bright story written in verse about equality and the importance of being ourselves and having the courage to follow our dreams. This short and simple story encourages children not to resign themselves to their fate but to look for what they were born for, what makes them happy. Every person has a gift.
