Forget everything you thought you knew about princesses...
Welcome to Bad Princess by Kris Waldherr (author of Doomed Queens), where you'll discover what really happens after "Happily Ever After." From the war-torn Dark Ages of Medieval Europe to America's Gilded Age, and all the way up to Kate Middleton, Bad Princess explores more than 30 true princess stories, going beyond the glitz and glamour to find out what life was really like for young royals throughout history.
A mix of royal biography, pop culture, art, style, and pure fun, Bad Princess is a whip-smart, tongue-in-cheek spin on the traditional princess narrative, proving that it takes more than a pretty crown to be a great leader.
Bad Princess was such an interesting read. I loved getting to read about all the different Princesses true stories. I recognized a few but there was a lot I didn't. I loved how witty and fun this book is! There are illustrations throughout the book which I really liked.There is also a game at the end of the book. I thought this was a very fun and unique idea. Bad Princess was a fun and interesting read with just the right amount of humor!
