From Publishers Weekly Fans of Michael Garland, whose titles include Mystery Mansion and The Mouse
Before Christmas, may be interested in his illustrations for a Christian
audience. I'd Be Your Princess: A Royal Tale of Godly Character by Kathryn
O'Brien, illus. by Garland, describes a father and daughter imagining what
they would do if they were king and princess. Garland's characteristically
vibrantly detailed, slightly skewed spreads first introduce the pair in their
contemporary home, then portray a no-holds-barred fairy tale setting. A Bible
quote (from the New International Version) clarifies the message on each
spread. For example, when the girl says they would wear jeweled crowns and
long red capes, the passage from I Peter is, "Let your beauty be that of your
inner self." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

God Bless this book Feb 12, 2007
Bible stories are great, but how many Noah's Ark books do I own??? 3 or 4? This is perfect for little girls who love fairy tales, but also need a wholesome lesson about living according God's wishes. It is a great book for daddy to read to them.

A Great Book for Daddies and Daughters Aug 4, 2005
I bought this book for my husband and daughters to share together. I was very pleased with the constant affirmation the "king" gives the "princess". My daughters love playing princess and this is something they can relate to while helping to focus their thoughts on important character traits. It's a very sweet and possitive bedtime story.
