This is a princess book!
No, it's a dinosaur book!
No, it's . . . a T. rex book? A dragon book? A rubber ducky book?!
From Linda Bailey, award-winning and critically acclaimed author, and Joy Ang, Adventure Time-artist and illustrator of the Mustache Baby series, comes an irresistibly irreverent picture book in which plucky princesses and determined dinosaurs have a battle royale over whose book this is. When they start calling in the big guns -- or rather, the big carnivores -- and decide to build a wall to resolve their differences, princesses and dinosaurs alike learn a thing or two about open-mindedness and sharing.
Bailey's clever picture book highlights two factions' ongoing struggle for attention and authority, which will resonate with anyone who's simultaneously cared for multiple children of divergent interests. Inclusively drawn, variously gendered princesses with varying skin tones and body types frolic across a pastel spread resplendent with rainbows, smiling woodland creatures, and unicorn pegasi. "This is a princess book. Tra la! Tra la! Tra la!" the text reads, and all is well--until the next spread, which shows dinosaurs rampaging across a dark-toned page: "NO! It's not! Wrong, wrong, wrong! This is a dinosaur book." As the opposing groups square off, Ang's expressive, dynamic digital illustrations humorously show the parties waging war in a speech-bubble-strewn argument--princesses on one side, dinos on the other. Events escalate, each side bringing out their big guns (a dragon and T. rex, respectively) and even building a wall before a resolution brings a subtle, welcome message of inclusion and empathy. An engaging read for princesses, dinosaurs, and everyone in between. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, LLC Used with permission.
