Review of the Persnickety Princess by Falcon Storm




About the Book - About the Author - Prizes!!!

About the book: High up in the tallest tower of the purplest castle in the Kingdom by the Sea, Princess Lavender awaits rescue. Desperate as she may be, only the most dashing, well dressed, properly mannered prince will do. Oh, and he must stand exactly four and three-quarters inches taller than her. A princess has got to have standards, after all.

When, finally, one such prince comes to her castle—not to rescue her, but her younger sister—Lavender refuses to be ignored. Instead of waiting for the next suitor to come along, she devises a plan to put herself in danger, thus forcing the upstart prince to forget her sister and rescue her instead.

Well accustomed to getting her way, there is only one thing, unfortunately, that this princess can’t control—her luck. When her plans go awry, putting her in very real danger, will she allow the prince to rescue her as he sees fit? Will he even want to try?

And will anyone be able to find a way to rescue Lavender from her persnickety ways once and for all? Find out in this comedic tale of princes, dragons, and dreams that just may come true.

The Persnickety Princess is a lower grade chapter book intended for kids 6 to 9 years old (although kids of all ages are sure to enjoy it! Pick up your copy through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords or Kobo Books.


My Review:

This was a very cute fairy tale.  I really enjoyed.  I believe any young girl would enjoy it and even some young boys.  I thought Lavender was way too silly, but that is what made the book so enjoyable.  She tried her hardest to get the Prince to rescue her, but it never happened, he was trying to rescue her sister, Petunia, and Lavender kept getting rescued by the Prince’s squire (or that is who she thought Dave was).  Filled with characters you expect in a fairy tale, you had the not so Wicked Witch, Natalie, and the Dragon, who Petunia names Persnickety.    The ending was very good.  Then there is Upon A. Time.  He is an outrageous Bard who tells the story.  I highly recommend this story and think it would make a very good cartoon.  Great job Falcon.  I look forward to the next book in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.

About the author: I was born in the frozen wasteland of Alaska with the unfortunate stigma of being both a daydreamer and left-handed. Starting from an early age, I've filled my life with stories of every sort from my father's hunting trips to the Holy Trilogy (read: Star Wars). In the fourth grade, I became more interested in telling stories of my own than listening to those of others. Doctors—being doctors—attempted to medicate them out of me, but the best cure has always been a pen, a notebook, and my crazy, unrestrained imagination. I continue to whittle away at these stories in my endless search for the one that will finally bring me back to reality. All the while, I secretly hope such a story will never come along. I hear "reality" is far too boring. Connect with Falcon on his website, Facebook,
