By Jody Smith

Illustrated by Glynise Martin

Children’s Fiction – Female Empowerment

34 Pages

“I am a Princess AND a Warrior.”

Do you have a daughter who sports tutus and converse shoes with a sword swung over her back? Then she’s going to LOVE Princess Monroe, a princess who saves herself!

Princess Monroe is more than just a princess. She’s an independent girl with lots of different interests. While her Queen Mom has ideas of finding her a prince, Monroe wants to explore, learn, play, get dirty, and find her own way in the world. As the princess continues to prove that she can do anything she wants, without being saved by a prince, her mom starts to listen. Ultimately, Monroe finds her own happy ending.

If you’re tired of reading fairy tales about princesses who need a prince to rescue them to your daughter, this spunky little bi-racial princess is the answer for you.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A wonderfully written story of one Princesses dreams of being something more! She shares her dreams with her mom and instead of finding them silly she helps those dreams come true. I think as parents it’s so important for us to support our children in any way possible. I want my son to chase him dreams. If he wants to be a doctor – awesome, if he wants to become an artist – hurray! I want him to know his choices are vast and if he puts his mind to it he can accomplish anything.

I love how this story is also bi-racial – I think for such a long time bi-racial children felt as if they didn’t fit in anywhere and now it’s been normalized. A great book for every child with gorgeous illustrations!

Jody Smith is a first-time author and longtime believer in fairytales. A former interior designer and store owner, this now present mama, dreamer and explorer is telling stories just outside of Mpls, MN.

It inspired her to write a book for all the princesses who are capable of saving themselves and for all the mindful mothers who revel in raising strong daughters.
