The book feels modern in its references and social cornerstones while retaining a classic, elegant style thanks to Wimmer's gorgeous portraits of the princesses in their crowns, each facing a page of that princess in action. Brown and Wimmer use diversity not only to highlight important differences among people, but also to show how these unique traits and interests allow every princess to choose her own path. If every girl is a little princess, this book shows that to keep that crown requires only finding things to love in life and pursuing them. ~Kirkus Star Review and BEST BOOKS OF 2018 There's a princess closer than you think. You just have to open your eyes and your heart wide. Don't expect your typical fairytale princesses inside this book. These princesses are neighbors, schoolmates, the cashier at your supermarket, a lawyer, an architect...The Truly Brave Princesses will help you realize that, if you watch closely, princesses are all around you, and they are brave, caring and determined.

I have never seen anyone with Down Syndrome ever celebrated in this manner before. Plus the writing is really fun. Better check it out. ~Fuse8

Maybe it's time to realize that each and every one of us could be a princess! "The Truly Brave Princesses" is an original, elegant, exquisite, and extraordinary picture book for children ages 4 to 8 and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections.
The truly brave princesses" is a book that celebrates diversity and teaches little girls that princesses don't just belong into fairytales. Author Dolores Brown shows that very few women resemble the perfect picture of a princess tales and movies represent. Real-life-princesses come in all shape and sizes, colors and sexual orientations: The girl in a wheelchair, the child with down syndrome, the elderly widow, the working mother and the lawyer helping to make the world a better place are just a few example of every day princesses around us. Some of them even don't want to be called a princess - like astronaut Zoe, who retired her princess some time ago and now travels through distant space. The artwork by German illustrator Sonja Wimmer is truly amazing. She gives every princess a unique personality by using colorful watercolor images on a slightly structured background. I am not one for ripping pages out of a book, but I almost thought about framing her images! ~The Reading Castle
Meet Princess Alice, a surfing blogger; Princess Kristen, an aspiring superheroine; Princess Nin, a firefighting city gardener; and many other princesses in this colorful tribute to the beautiful diversity, strength, and inspiration found in women of all ages, shapes, and walks of life. ~Foreword Reviews (Foreword Indies Bronze Medal Winner).

Brown's inclusive message is full-hearted and genuine. ~Publishers Weekly
