PART-TIME PRINCESS is a wonderfully fresh take on a princess story. Here, there's more to the job than wearing pretty clothes and nabbing a royal husband. This princess uses her time each night in a magical kingdom to fight fires, tame dragons, and have fun. It's all done with a light touch and a very appealing protagonist.

There are echoes of the girl's real home in the fantasy world, highlighted in Cambira Evans' cheery illustrations (including a small dolphin toy at home that becomes a real dolphin in her princess bathtub).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
