Princesses Allie, Mellie, and Libby are very busy at their rose covered palace by the sea. Princess Allie bakes the best cakes you've ever had. Princess Libby is an expert at building things. And Princess Mellie can grow almost anything in her garden.
But the princesses are tired of being the best at just one thing. So when it's time to prepare for the Summer Party, the princesses decide to switch places! Allie will build the chairs, Mellie will bake the cupcakes, and Libby will grow berries in the garden. After all, princesses are good at everything. . . . right?

About the Author:

Kate Lum grew up in New England, headed to Canada for university, and never quite made it home again. She is now settled in a picturesque little theatre town near Toronto with her husband, an entrepreneur, and two children. She is also the author of Princesses Are Not Quitters.

Sue Hellard is the illustrator of Where's My Hug?, Princesses Are Not Quitters!, and Madame Pamplemousse and her Incredible Edibles. She lives in England.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–4—Believing that "Princesses are good at everything," princesses Libby, a master builder; Mellie, a master gardener; and Allie, a master baker, switch roles before a party, with predictable results. Then, during an all-nighter, they whip each others' mistakes into shape and make cupcakes, baskets of blueberries, and little chairs for their guests. This companion to Princesses Are Not Quitters (Bloomsbury, 2003) offers a slim portion of merit, especially in its whimsical and cleverly detailed watercolors (such as the screwdriver in Libby's coiffure, the wooden spoon in Allie's, and the flowers in Mellie's). Unfortunately, it suffers from a didactic resolution and frivolous story line. Frilly dresses, pink puppies, golden table settings, and sumptuous, far-fetched desserts abound. Still, princess fanatics will clamor for a story detailing preparations for a summer party at a rose-covered castle by the sea.—Sara Lissa Paulson, American Sign Language and English Lower School PS 347, New York City
