Who Wants to Be a Princess?: What It Was Really Like to Be a Medieval Princess

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Migy. Beatrice, a fictional medieval princess, takes readers through her typical day and debunks myths about princesses reinforced by fairy tales (e.g., real princesses don't frolic and sing to animals, they "practice riding and archery"). Detailed mixed-media illustrations reinforce the informative and amusing text, offering a realistic representation of the Middle Ages. An author's note provides additional insights about royal life.
