Coming Soon: The Secret Lives of Princesss & Giveaway

Summary: Stepping from the shadows at last are such unique and captivating characters as Princess Claire Voyant, who can see into the future, but always muddles her predictions. Then there's Princess Tangra-la, known for her exquisite dancing, and Princess Babbling Brooke, who chatters on about everything and nothing. And who wouldn't want to meet the Princess of the Disorient, who invents all manner of nonsensical celebrations? As mysterious as they are beautiful, and as eccentric as they are intelligent, these fascinating royal ladies await your discovery. -- Sterling

Ever since I heard about the new kids book THE SECRET LIVES OF PRINCESSES by Philippe Lechermeier and illustrated by Rebecca Dautremer, I have been dying to read it. I think the concept for this novel is so unique; and I can't wait to get a peek at the behind-the-scene stories of the not-so-famous princesses. I can already sense how much little girls are going to love this creative and imaginative (and did I mention funny?) look at princesses who are a definitely a bit unusual.

I will be reviewing THE SECRET LIFE OF PRINCESSES a little closer to its publication date in the beginning of June; but in the meantime, you can learn more about this book at the official website -- you can already get an idea of how gorgeous the artwork is. Three of the four princess have already been revealed, with another one coming this week. You can also become a fan at the Facebook Page: Being a Princess.

In anticipation of the release of this beautiful (and very fun) book, Sterling has graciously offered to giveaway ten packs of The Secret Lives of Princesses Puzzle Cards. There are two different packs of cards, and each one features seven of the mysterious royal ladies from the book, plus a game card. Just follow the instructions on the game card to win a prize at To enter, just leave a comment here with the name of your favorite fictional princess as well as your email address. The contest will be open until Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 11:59 p.m. ET, and I will notify the winners the following day. This contest is open to those of you in the US and Canada only. Good luck!

I've always liked Cinderella. I remember reading a Disney book about her over and over when I was a kid.

As an adult, I was always fascinated with the real Princess Di. Such a shame that she is gone.

I don't know if Thumbelina was considered a princess, but I considered her one as a young girl. My daughter's favorite is Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. Staciele(at)netins(dot)net

How in the world could there be any competition for Clair Voyant - hysterical! Ok - if I must choose, then I'll go with the Princess and the Pea (since I have sleep disorders:-)
Thanks for the giveaway.
