This book is fabulous. The story is great for both genders, thought there are sparkles on the hardcover version, which might make it a hard sell to boys. This story is a parody on the classic story of Sleeping Beauty, and it’s all about a not-your-normal princess who fights ogres and saves everyone from an evil curse. The plot is pretty good, and I’d recommend the book for early readers on (not quite a beginning read, but it has bigger text and illustrations to make it easier). There are a lot of speech bubbles within the illustrations, which there are quite a few of. The main character, Harriet, challenges gender stereotypes and she also thinks fractions are cool. This would be a super fun read-aloud for a family, too!
