I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma. ~ Eartha Kitt

If you've got a little princess who demands princess stories, The Kite Princess by Juliet Clare Bell makes a change from the skinny, fashion conscious Disney variety.

The heroine, princess Cinnamon Stitch is tired of fine dresses, looking pretty and practising her deportment. Much to her parents' alarm she would rather wear overalls, do cartwheels and climb trees. Tired of being confined to the palace Cinnamon sews herself a fabulous kite and takes off into the sky. This looks like so much fun that the king and queen and eventually the rest of the kingdom decide to join her.

My daughter and I both loved the brilliantly coloured, whimsical illustrations by Laura-Kate Chapman. There are also some instructions in the back of the book for making and decorating your own kite, which we look forward to trying out soon. The Kite Princess is a fun, beautifully illustrated little story. I'd recommend it for kids aged 3 to 6.
