    1. Waldherr, famous for her beautiful and inventive tarot books, has written a first rate account of Princesses, both real and fictional, for . This is a lovely, illustrated book about how girls became princesses and what happened to them. The author also explores other social concerns and great trivia. This is a book that every mother should buy their daughter or granddaughter. It's clever, charming and just plain delightful. I bought my granddaughter a copy for her library at home. She's already [...]

    2. A terrific showing from Waldherr. I enjoyed the witty, tongue in cheek voice, the tidbits about princesses I knew and those I didn't, and the lovely and clever drawings that grace the pages. In particular, I delighted in the princess board game. I look forward to gifting this to my tween daughter and her friends.

    3. Bad Princess is a super cute and fast read! I don't know about some of you, but I have been obsessed with princesses since I was little, both of the real and make-believe variety. That's the premise that Waldherr works off of, girls (both young and old) and their obsession with all things princess. But then she puts a spin on it, looking at some of the more "rebellious" or "risqué" princesses throughout history. Along the way, she also adds in explanations of different royal terms/ideas, like w [...]

    4. There have been many little girls that have dreamt of becoming princesses. The surge of the princess obsession has been made popular by Disney. There have been Disney Princess movies, dolls, tiaras, and costumes. While many girls dream of becoming princesses and living happily-ever-after, Mrs. Waldherr states that in real-life many princesses did not end up with a happy ending. She takes the reader on a romp through history analyzing real-life princesses from the Dark Ages to the present day. I [...]

    5. A quick read that teaches girls that being a princess isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's rather dark in parts (say hello to Elizabeth Bathory, the "Blood Countess!") - so something to keep in mind depending on the age/maturity level of the reader. Not surprising, it does tend to run European-centric, but the author does include a few modern day princesses from Africa and Dubai and Princess Ka'iulani from Hawaii warrants her own section. Outside of, what I felt, was an overly simplistic view o [...]

    6. As I've said before, I like books that present a collection of bios of little-known women famous--or infamous!--for something. I have a special (physical) bookshelf just for them. These books have several things in common: a breezy modern, often sardonic, voice; a generally sympathetic and/or admiring tone towards women who did remarkable things in a trying time/environment; and lots of gossipy nuggets of information that most serious biographies bury or avoid. Bad Princesses is an excellent exa [...]

    7. Review of princess from long ago to today. Wish more time was spent on modern princesses. Like the philanthropy bit.
