9780060587635: Camp Princess 1: Born to Rule

Are you growing tired of royal balls and boring banquets with visiting kings and princes? Do you long to escape the confines of the palace and find yourself in a completely new place, surrounded by other princesses your own age?

Camp Princess is the perfect place for any princess to find a summer of magical fun!

And this year, for a princess named Alicia, Camp Princess will become something more -- a place of mystery and adventure. Her turret seems to be haunted, and the golden bird that she captured for the songbird contest refuses to sing a note! It's all utterly frustrating -- until one shadowy night, when Alicia feels a ghostly presence in her room and begins to discover a destiny far more exciting than anything she could have imagined.

About the Author:

Kathryn Lasky is the nationally bestselling author of many books for children and adults, including the Newbery Honor Book Sugaring Time; Elizabeth I and other popular books in the Royal Diaries series; and the bestselling epic fantasy series Guardians of Ga'hoole, which became a major motion picture. In Guardians of Ga'hoole, Lasky explores the behavior of owls. Now she uses her extensive research on hawks and the sport of falconry to again render a world that seamlessly blends natural history with fantasy.

The author and her husband, Christopher Knight, live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and summer on an island off the coast of Maine. There she enjoys watching peregrine falcons soar on the thermal drafts above the cove where she swims.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6 Princess Alicia of All the Belgravias does not want to attend Camp Princess. Young royals from near and far, nasty and nice, engage in activities that include swimming, falconry, embroidery, flawless makeup application, and training songbirds from the Forest of Chimes. Alicia's bird refuses to sing and the girl's unexpected outspokenness gets her in trouble with a camp counselor, threatening to put her purple team in last place in the camp's color wars. The only saving grace turns out to be her new turret mates: Princess Kristen of the Isles of Salt Tears in the Realm of the Rolm and Princess Gundersnap of the Empire of Slobodkonia. Yet, it is shy Alicia who becomes embroiled in a tragic old love story. She meets a mysterious, magical woman in the forest and discovers a ghost lurking in her bedchamber and a missing tapestry that tells only half of the lovers' tale. In the end, the girls release the ghost princess and her knight for a happy reunion. Some characters are not fully developed and Gundersnap's accent is inconsistent. Despite these minor distractions, readers will enjoy the satisfying ending. Purchase this one for devoted fans of puffball princess stories. Alison Grant, West Bloomfield Township Public Library, MI
