Princess Pigsty by Cornelia Funke
Illustrated by Kerstin Meyer
I fell in love with Isabella immediately. She's is a princess who's pampered and tended to all day... and she hates it. "I am tired of being a princess! It's boring, boring, boring!" "I want to get dirty!"
As someone who always disliked girls being called princesses, hated pink, and loved to get down and dirty, this book truly spoke to my inner child. I can't wait to be able to share this wonderful tale with my daughter!
