The worst princess


Once upon a time, in a tower, lived a sad princess, Princess Sue. “Someday,” she sighed, “my prince will come, but I wish he’d move his royal bum.” But when Princess Sue’s prince finally does arrive, he’s not quite what she had in mind. Find out how the feisty princess escapes the clutches of her twit of a prince in this funny twist on the traditional princess tale.


With lovely illustrations the book rewrites the traditional princess story and provides a great message about being oneself and finding one’s own happiness. The worst Princess teaches important lessons about independence and taking charge of one’s life, and not to let anyone, especially those who claim to love you and know what’s “best” for you, put you in a cage because of your gender.
