Princesses, Princesses, Princesses!

Everyone loves a good princess tale, whether young or old, and the Children's Department has an awesome selection of titles for you to pick from. For the early readers we have such series as: The Tiara Club and Pony-Crazed Princess. For those who like humorous/fractured adaptations of traditional tales, try these spin-off series: The Frog Princess or Princess School. Historical fiction fans will soon learn that some real-life princesses of old did not have a fairy-tale existence at all when they read Girl in a Cage. Three great new additions to our princess collection are: The Extraordinary Princess, The Princess Plot, and Princess of the Midnight Ball. Enjoy CPL's parade of princesses!
