An alliterative romp
through the letter P with Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole, the team
who brought us SOME SMUG SLUG, THE WORRYWARTS, FOUR FAMISHED FOXES AND
FOSDYKE, DINORELLA, and more!
Princess Pigtoria’s palace was a
pigsty and she was penniless. Perhaps, if the prince proposed, she could
make her palace picturesque again. If only Prince Proudfoot wasn’t such
a pompous porker.
A pretty new princess-and-the-pea picture book for little people who love preposterous play with the letter P!
Prepare for a parade of the letter P! Princess Pigtoria sets off on the adventure of the Princess and the Pea that uses every possible P word you can think of.
It is an adorable picture book about a pig that needs to marry someone to help her fix up her palace. But this story adds a pleasant twist to the traditional tale. The prince turns out to be not so charming, and the pizza pig starts looking pretty perfect.
There were a few instances that I thought the use of a P word made a sentence rather awkward. However, the story is very cute and fun to read. It became one of my daughter’s “lovey” books where she dragged it around the house with her, read it 400 times a day, slept with it, ate with it, etc. Her favorite part was when Pigtoria tells Prince Proudfoot that she doesn’t like him!
