Princesses Are Not Just Pretty by Kate Lum (Bloomsbury, £6.99)

Princess Allie, Princess Libby and Princess Mellie all get into an argument over which of them is the prettiest princess as they enjoy afternoon tea. In order to solve the dispute they decide to have a beauty contest, but they all soon learn that beauty isn’t just skin deep.

Princesses Are Not Just Pretty is a brilliant story with lively illustrations courtesy of Sue Hellard. It’s a fresh take on the archetypal princess story and it teaches a valuable lesson about the dangers of narcissism and vanity.

From a young age children – especially little girls – are bombarded with ideas about image and what physical attributes are highly prized in society. Princesses Are Not Just Pretty is a brilliant and engaging way to teach children about the importance of how you act and behave as opposed to just how you look.
