About the Author

Being in nature is central to all of Carmela LaVigna Coyle's many picture books. She walks daily under a canopy of cottonwoods because she believes there's always something extraordinary to see outside. Carmela lives, works, and camps (happily) in Colorado with her family. Visit her at http: // Mike Gordon was brought up in the big city of Manchester, and although he spent time camping in the cold, wet climate of northern England, he soon learned the comforts of five-star hotels. He now resides in dry Santa Barbara, California, where he spends his days drawing the great outdoors but feels more at home in the malls close to home. You can read his story at http: //


Coyle returns with Princess, ever the precocious child with her endless questions, this time about camping. Her questions include 'What will we do if it rains?' and 'Do princesses bike over mountains and brooks?' Princess discovers all of the fun one can have while camping. The story is written with minimal text, in rhyming couplets that keep the narrative moving in a way young children will both understand and enjoy. Gordon's illustrations are whimsical and cartoonlike, while background details are delightful and engaging. Children will giggle at the princess antics throughout. . . . Fans of this series will appreciate this title.--School Library Journal
