With eye-catching illustrations and fast-paced stories, this series has a lot to love. Readers might think they know where the stories in Princess Pink and the Land of Fake-Believe are headed, but they're almost always wrong. The reimagined fairy tales take surprising turns, and the writing is both faithful to the original story (giving early readers the boost of confidence that comes with familiarity) and completely irreverent, all at the same time.

Names like "The Three Little Pugs" require readers to read what's on the page, not rely on what's in their memory from classic fairy tales. The conversation bubbles encourage readers to inject emotion into their voice, so this is a good series for kids who are learning to read aloud.

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.
