Not All Princesses Dress in Pink by Jane Yolen and Heidi E. Y. Stemple, illustrated by Anne-Sophie Lanquetin

Not All Princesses Dress in PinkLet the giggling begin! Mother/daughter writing team of hundreds-and-hundreds-of-titles-between-the-two-of-them present girl power with a pink-less crown on top! And what an absolutely delightful collaboration indeed. Not to disparage the color pink ā€“ I admit it! I loathe the color! ā€“ but really, pink is just not the only color of choice for girls! Here’s why …

Today’s real girls prefer stinky red socks, not-quite-fitting blue team jerseys, unfancy soccer cleats, and muddy tattered wrestling gear. And while they might have a thing for jewelry, they also enjoy power tools, greasy meals, dump trucks, and fighting in chain mail. Believe you me, these girls need no one but themselves to rescue them from stony towers!

With sparkly crowns jauntily in place, nothing is going to stop these princesses from enjoying all their boundless, limitless “princess power”! We should all be that uncolor-uncoordinated … and gleefully STRONG. Here’s to girl power for ALL ages!
