Princess Unlimited
Ten years ago, when my daughter was little, I read too many picture books about princesses who sit around waiting to be rescued. In response, I wrote my own tale about a princess who faces a dragon, starts a business, and saves the kingdom. Today, it finally hits the shelves, with wonderful art from Raissa Figueroa. It got a great review from School Library Journal: "This essential purchase smashes societal barriers erected against gender"!

PS: The School Library Journal link goes to an excerpt from the review but if you have an SLJ subscription, you can find the full review here.

Oops! I meant to include a link to this free activity kit. It will help kids set up a lemonade stand and make their own business cards, just like Princess Susan! (And it will give grownups a sense of the book if you're deciding whether to buy it.)

For another alternative princess, see Princess Smartypants by Babette Cole (1986)
