Synopsis: Princess Miranda does not want to go to school.

My Review:  Anarece here!! I am done with school and that means that I am going to be reading books again!! So first up is Miranda and Maude book one.  The story dragged me in because I wanted to know more about the characters and the story.  I loved Maude and her obsession with hard boiled eggs.  I thought it was really funny because she is right Hard boiled eggs are important!! Miranda reminded me of my mom, who also likes to organize things.  She is always telling me to pick up my stuff and to keep the living room neat.  

I loved everyone in the book and I liked the artwork though it.  My favorite part of the story was towards the end because it was funny!  I say that this book would be great for kids my age so 6 to 9.  I can't wait to get another one from this series! 

"This series opener is a short and sweet chapter book, decorated with von Innerebner's child-friendly illustrations as well as the drawings that Maude makes in her journal. Wunsch weaves in lessons of empathy and withholding judgment in an accessible, nonpreachy way. She ably captures and expresses feelings of misunderstanding and loneliness, all while creating laugh-out-loud scenes in which the girls ramp up the competition . . . This unlikely combination of royalty and social justice delivers fun, learning, and laughs."
(Kirkus Reviews)

"At its core, this is a book about feeling different, making uninformed judgments about others, trying new things, and finding acceptance."
(School Library Journal)

"This hilarious illustrated story of an odd-couple friendship initiates a new early chapter book series for young readers . . . A totally delightful story guaranteed to please."
(School Library Connection)

"Von Innerebner (the Ellie Ultra series) includes telling details in the expressive black-and-white illustrations that help limn the differences between the two girls. . . With a light touch and humor, Wunsch (The Movie Version), launching the Miranda and Maude chapter book series, underscores the value of eschewing stereotypes."
(Publishers Weekly)
