The Not-So-Perfect Princess and the Not-So-Dreadful DragonISBN: 9781925089431
Princess Petal is NOT what you would expect the 'perfect' princess to be. In fact, she is quite the opposite. Her princess dresses are torn and scruffy, she wears an old woolly hat instead of a golden crown and she is very (very) loud. So when Princess Petal meets a fire-breathing dragon while out hiking in the forest, both are in for a bit of a shock!
An enchanting tale about friendship, diversity, acceptance and being exactly who we are meant to be. The moral behind this story is imperative yet simple: we are all different and that's okay, making judgements and assumptions about people is NOT okay, all genders should be treated equally.
Also included are Discussion Questions for parents, caregivers and educators.
Best suited for children aged 4 to 10 years.
