Dangerously Ever After

Written by Dashka Slater, Illustrated by Valeria Docampo

As a big fan of fairy tales, I was excited by the cover and title of this book. This princess is definitely someone new. Princess Amanita is attracted to danger. She likes her pets poisonous and her plants putrid. I love Docampo’s illustrations and attention to detail – like how Amanita’s hair and her cat’s tail resemble a scorpion’s tail – so delightful! The story stumbles a bit with a somewhat rushed resolution, but overall it is a refreshing take on a princess story.
