This is a princess who saves princes – ones who’ve been turned into frogs, who’ve been kidnapped by ogres, and who are locked in terrible dungeons. A charming book that turns centuries of storytelling on its head.
Princess to the Rescue will spark discussions on gender stereotypes.
– CM Magazine
This thought provoking book is humorous, light, and a pleasant read.

Teaching that gender is not a requirement for brave, courageous action, "Princess to the Rescue" will wind its way into the heart even as it topples cherished old stereotypes dissolved in laughter.
– The Midwest Book Review
Although fairy tales often have princesses fainting at dragons and being locked in towers, this is the story of one who wears custom-made armor and carries a purse filled with secret weapons.
