Speaking of princesses, Sterling Children's books plans to release a marvelous princess themed book this June 2010 titled The Secret Lives of Princesses by Philippe Lechermeir. I recently had a sneak peak at the work and, low and behold, the pond dwelling, frog kissing princess makes an appearance in this very interesting compilation of unusual princesses (many of them never seen before). Now I can't say much more about it, but if you think you've already read everything there is to read about princesses, this upcoming book promises to delight and surprise you with fantastical illustrations by Rebecca Dautremer. Expect a full review here at a later date!
To further entice you, check out the book's website. I see a little of myself in the bookworm Princess Paige. Or become a fan on Facebook and be the first to learn when new princesses are revealed.
Sterling has graciously offered to giveaway a pack of The Secret Lives of Princesses Puzzle Cards to (10) different Brimful Curiosities readers. Each pack includes seven different cards featuring various princesses and a logic puzzle to solve. After receiving the cards the winners can visit the website and crack the code using the cards to unlock a special prize!
