”I want to be a princess“ says the little girl. “But why? You will be so bored!” warns her mum. A princess spends a lot of time waiting, while her prince is out having adventures, riding a white steed, waving his big sword, fighting dragons, and putting out fires. The little girl acts out being a prince. And she discovers that riding, fighting, and putting out fires suit her much more than being a princess. A fresh look at gender stereotypes, this wryly humorous picture book ends with the recognition that even the fiercest warriors can have contradictory desires…
