Book Description

"Being a princess is the dullest ever" is the opening complaint of spoilt Princesses Allie, Mellie and Libby in Kate Lums spirited fairy tale Princesses Are Not Quitters. The pampered princesses daily routine consists of lounging around their luxurious palace and being waited on hand and foot. But boredom soon sets in and Allie, Libby and Mellie find themselves looking enviously at three servant girls "out in the fresh air, doing interesting things" and decide to switch places with them. The housekeeper, Mrs Blue takes the princesses at their word and sets them to work straight away. They tackle all sorts of jobs (mostly ineptly) from weeding the garden to shearing the sheep and quickly realise that being a servant is not as much fun as theyd first thought.

Sue Hellards gloriously extravagant illustrations (particularly the princesses huge Marge Simpson-style hair and flamboyant dresses) are perfectly suited to this witty tale. And like all good fairy tales, it has a moral, as the princesses become more appreciative as a result of finding out about other peoples lives. Age four upwards. --Alison Drury.
