Who Wants to Be a Princess?: What It Was Really Like to Be a Medieval Princess (Hardcover)
The book is not currently in stock at our stores. Please call us for price and availability.
Did you ever wish to be a princess? Have you ever wanted to wear a pretty pink gown, sing to your forest animal friends, and attend a fancy fairy-tale ball?
Then meet Beatrice—she represents what being a princess in the Middle Ages was really like. Pink gown? More like itchy wool! Sing to animals? Think archery and horseback riding instead. Beatrice’s life is no fairy tale, but she will show you that fact can sometimes be more fascinating than fantasy.
This humorous, brightly illustrated book offers an irresistible comparison of fairy tale vs. real life in medieval times.
