“Ross’ concept is clear and funny, and the pink- and purple-heavy watercolors maintain a light, airy feel befitting the stress-free concept.” —Booklist

School Library Journal

“The charming pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations and clever play between words and pictures help set the tone to keep the story fun. Fans of the series will be pleased to have another installment.” —School Library Journal

Publishers Weekly

“With gestural strokes, Ross’s ink and watercolor illustrations play up the princess’s impudence; readers should relate, while recognizing that a little assistance never hurts.” —Publishers Weekly
