#BookReview: Eight Princesses and a Magic Mirror by Natasha Farrant, Lydia Corry (Illustrator)

Synopsis: Here are eight princesses for the Rebel Girl's generation: bold, empowered, full of curiosity, adventure and determination to be true to themselves. Natasha Farrant's original stories are set in different times all around the world, blending modern and traditional storytelling with glowing full colour illustrations by debut artist Lydia Corry in a glorious gift book.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall... What makes a princess excellent?"

An enchantress flings her magic mirror into our universe. Through the centurys, around the world, reflected in it are princesses who refuse to be pretty, polite or obedient. These girls are fierce, brave and determined to do the rescuing themselves.

The desert princess protects her people from the king with the black and gold banner. The forest princess takes a crocodile for a pet. An island princess explores the high seas. A mountain princess puts kindness above being royal. And in a tower-block in a city, a girl called Princess saves her community garden from the hands of urban developers.


Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This was a cute little collection of stories all surrounding a mirror.  I think that this would be a great book for schools where kids could use this for class.  They could read the book then create their own fairytale stories.  I loved how this one was put together and I can not wait for another one. 

Natasha Farrant has written numerous children’s books, including the Carnegie-longlisted and Branford Boase–shortlisted The Things We Did for Love. She lives in London.
