A PRINCESS LIKE ME by Matthew Reinhart

A PRINCESS LIKE ME

A Royal Pop-up Book
Age Range: 4 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

A candy-coated burst of high-fructose goo, saturated with pink and equipped with pop-ups on every page.

Reinhart lays it on with a trowel: “Good morning, good morning! What a busy day it will be. / There’s so much to do for a princess like me!” Once the pet unicorn is fed, of course, planning a party tops the to-do list. Every spread or page features a pop-up, pull-tab or flap that, for instance, transforms the wide-eyed young royal’s plain pink gown into something more froufrou and even pinker and, in the culminating tableau, poses her with a distinctly multicultural array of slightly less-dressy peers. Coloring pages inside the paper covers provide outlined fashion plates for dewy young designers. Hearts are, naturally, everywhere in the sunny, pastel-hued scenes.

Insipid. (Pop-up/picture book. 4-7)
