The Rapping Princess

by Hannah Lee (Author) Allen Fatimaharan (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

A completely original rhyming picture book that celebrates daring to be different, featuring Shiloh, the rapping princess.

Here is a story that everyone should know. It's the tale of a princess named Shiloh. She lived in a kingdom, not far from yours, in a grand house with a swimming pool and fourteen floors. I know that sounds too big but here's the thing: her mother and father were the Queen and King. Being a princess is a tough job for someone so small. It's even harder when you've a problem you can't solve at all. You see, every princess in the kingdom could sing. Yet Shiloh's voice could do no such thing . . . Shiloh might not be able to sing like her sisters, but she has other talents, and sometimes it's about embracing your differences and celebrating them!

Kirkus Reviews

True hip-hop heads may balk at this simplistic presentation of rap divorced from its roots as social commentary, but many children will enjoy this energetic fable and the unique cultural style on its pages. Hit or miss, but the Black princess is definitely great to see.
