In her second adventure, Princess Truly's magical curls and belief in herself transport her back in time and help her reach for the stars!
I love my fluffy, puffy curls.
I'm so happy they are mine.
When I believe in myself,
They shimmer and they shine.
Princess Truly is back! In the second Princess Truly adventure, Truly's magical, sparkling curls have the power to transport her to exciting new places like the Egyptian pyramids, the Jurassic period, and even into outer space. With curiosity, bravery, and her signature smarts, Princess Truly once again proves that she can do anything she sets her mind to and reminds girls everywhere to reach for the stars, believe in themselves, and dream big!
In this follow-up to 2017's Princess Truly in I Am Truly, the effervescent African-American heroine takes her self-esteem to new levels: "I love my fluffy, puffy curls./ I'm so happy they are mine./ When I believe in myself, / They shimmer and they shine." Not only do her curls sparkle like firecrackers, they are also able to transport her to a multitude of locations: Rauscher's sunny watercolors show Princess Truly meeting friendly dinosaurs in a prehistoric past, exploring undersea depths in a purple submarine, and venturing into the cosmos where she starts a rock band with a group of aliens. Princess Truly's affirmations can get a bit repetitive, yet girls whose personalities are as buoyant as hers will welcome this gleeful celebration of self-confidence and black girl magic. Ages 3-5.
