A work of nonfiction covering, you guessed it, real princesses. The book is full of facts, pictures, illustrated charts, and more. Readers will learn about Salic law, “princess wars,” how to wed a prince circa the 1800s, and more. For instance, Salic law was not practiced everywhere. It held that only males could inherit the throne. Thi A work of nonfiction covering, you guessed it, real princesses. The book is full of facts, pictures, illustrated charts, and more. Readers will learn about Salic law, “princess wars,” how to wed a prince circa the 1800s, and more. For instance, Salic law was not practiced everywhere. It held that only males could inherit the throne. This is a peppy, interesting read; it’s perfect for tweens. Waldherr makes the information relatable by using current pop culture references, while splashes of color add much to the overall design. The title also will prompt reluctant studernts to learn more about history and what living like a royal was like in the past and present. VERDICT This is a great book to recommend to readers who want a taste of history with a side of fairy tale princesses.—Maeve Dodds, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC
