Fay Stanley, Diane Stanley's mother, was the author of suspense novels and short stories for adults. The Last Princess: the Story of Princess Ka'iulani of Hawai'i, was her only children's book.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-- Diane Stanley's newest picture biography with a text by her mother is the story of Princess Ka'iulani of Hawai'i. Expected to one day become queen, she is sent to England to be educated, only to have the haoles (foreigners) threaten her family's right to rule. Although her courageous plea to President Grover Cleveland postponed the end of Hawaii's independence, the islands were annexed by the United States in 1897. The beautiful Princess Ka'iulani died only 2 years later at the age of 23. As with Stanley's other biographies, readers are transported into another very believable world. The full-page paintings are stunning, reflecting the beauty of the islands and the handsome, racially mixed people who live there. Although her style evolves and adapts somewhat to her material, the book has an unmistakably Stanley look. A helpful note on the Hawaiian language and an extensive bibliography complete this visual treat. --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, NY
