"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"-- Provided by publisher.

From Library Staff

In fairy tales, princesses live in castles, wear beautiful gowns and sing to adorable animals. In medieval times, princesses lived in castles, but everything else was just a little bit different. How different? You’ll just have to read and find out. (Elementary)

A cute but educational book. A few inaccuracies, but nothing world-ending. The art style is really nice, and I appreciate the down-to-earth honesty throughout.

Nonfiction with a sense of humor is hard to pull off but this book does it very well. Even though it's a princess story, boys would enjoy this story. Great historical information at the end, as well.
