Meet the princess who'd rather wear a suit of armor than a crown!
Princess Serena (or as she prefers, Princess Pulverizer) doesn't want to be a princess--she wants to be knight! But her father, King Alexander of Empiria, thinks she still has a lot to learn when it comes to exhibiting valiant behavior. So he presents a challenge: the princess must first go on a Quest of Kindness and perform good deeds to prove that she truly deserves to go to knight school. With help from a friendly dragon named Dribble and a perpetually terrified knight-in-training named Lucas, can she complete her quest and discover what it really takes to be a hero?
Princess Serena is a little bit of a spoiled girl but she doesn’t want to be a fluffy princess, she wants to be a knight and fight dragons. She also doesn’t want you to call her Princess Serena, you can call her Princess Pulverizer. She begs her dad to let her be a knight but he said the one thing that knights have is kindness, so he sends her on a Quest for Kindness to prove that she can be a hero.
On her quest she meets to unlikely heroes that I think will be able to help Serena find her kindness. I thought this was a very cute book and the illustrations are gorgeous! I just loved them. I liked Serena but she is a little harsh at times however it is a quest for her to find kindness so she couldn’t be the nicest person to start otherwise the quest would be pointless. 🙂
I thought the situation that her and her friends were put in was very funny and I thought they were very smart with how they handled it. I am looking forward to seeing there the story does and if Princess Pulverizer can find kindness.
Overall, I thought this book was very cute, she is a little harsh at times but over all I think it will be find to watch her grow into a true hero, I highly recommend to younger kids and adults. This would be a great book to read to your kids or have them read aloud to you. 🙂
