About the Author

Dolores Brown is the author of the acclaimed book The Truly Brave Princesses (2018 Best Children's Books by Kirkus), as well as The Day of Your Arrival, a charming tale about adoption from a different viewpoint. Her books radiate subtleness and tenderness, with a strong message in each story.
Sonja Wimmer is a renowned international illustrator. Her books are among the most best-selling in Europe. In the USA She has received the Independent Publisher Book Award, the International Latino Book, and she was two times winner of the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards. Her book "Bogo the Fox Who Wanted Everything" is a Junior Library Guild Selection.


Maybe it's time to realize that each and every one of us could be a princess! "The Truly Brave Princesses" is an original, elegant, exquisite, and extraordinary picture book for children ages 4 to 8 and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections.
There is plenty to enjoy, as each page opening presents information and detailed, whimsical art showing the princess and her world. The art is lush, using a warm palette, and the settings are both exotic and familiar, with a European feel. I can see a wide age range appreciating this book. Read it aloud to kids ages 4-6. Older ones will enjoy imagining themselves doing all the wonderful things these princesses do as they read the book on their own.
A book that celebrates diversity and teaches little girls that princesses don't just belong into fairytales. Author Dolores Brown shows that very few women resemble the perfect picture of a princess tales and movies represent. Real-life-princesses come in all shape and sizes, colors and sexual orientations: The girl in a wheelchair, the child with down syndrome, the elderly widow, the working mother and the lawyer helping to make the world a better place are just a few example of every day princesses around us. Some of them even don't want to be called a princess - like astronaut Zoe, who retired her princess some time ago and now travels through distant space. The artwork by German illustrator Sonja Wimmer is truly amazing. She gives every princess a unique personality by using colorful watercolor images on a slightly structured background. I am not one for ripping pages out of a book, but I almost thought about framing her images! The Reading Castle
Brown and Wimmer use diversity not only to highlight important differences among people, but also to show how these unique traits and interests allow every princess to choose her own path. If every girl is a little princess, this book shows that to keep that crown requires only finding things to love in life and pursuing them. -Kirkus Reviews
Meet Princess Alice, a surfing blogger; Princess Kristen, an aspiring superheroine; Princess Nin, a firefighting city gardener; and many other princesses in this colorful tribute to the beautiful diversity, strength, and inspiration found in women of all ages, shapes, and walks of life. Foreword Reviews
Brown's inclusive message is full-hearted and genuine. Publishers Weekly
I have never seen anyone with Down Syndrome ever celebrated in this manner before. Plus the writing is really fun. Better check it out. Fuse8
