ABOUT THE BOOK:
Princess No Knots LOVES her long golden hair as much as she LOVES her bath time, but she does NOT love having it brushed. When her flowing locks end up in knots, the King tells her they will have to be cut and takes away her crown. Enter a world of determination, sprinkled with a small dose of magic, to find out if the strong-willed Princess finds a way to get back her crown, keep her name and save the hair she so loves. A must read rhyming picture book for any parent who struggles with the dreaded ‘hair wash’ night!
Before I begin my review today I quickly have to thank Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for sending me a copy of the book to read and for allowing me to be on the blog tour for this super cute children’s picture book. I highly recommend picking this up.
The illustrations were eye-catching and gorgeous from start to finish. The rhyming is perfect for this. It’s such a cute picture book. Princess No Knots loves having her bath but hates having her hair brushed. Her father the King has had enough and tells his daughter that she is no longer Miss No Knots and tells her, her hair must be cut because it’s one big knot. Then proceeds to take her crown and tells her that once her hair is knot-free she will have it back. This of course upsets the little princess because to her that is her name. She tried to brush out her hair but to no avail. The knots would not come out.
Then out of the blue comes a little fairy who offers the princess a way to get back her crown and the knots out of her hair. Will the princess get her crown and name back? Will the king have to cut his daughter’s hair?
Author Bio –
Deborah Dillon’s love of books, poems, and storytelling stems from her Granddad Jim who always used to make up stories at bedtime when she was young. Every story would take her to a crazy world of adventure and friendship, each story sprinkled with a tiny bit of determination.
Since having children of her own Deborah has continued this family tradition but rather than keeping all the stories in her head, she decided to write them down. As her children were growing up she was inspired to write about whatever obstacles or challenges they, or their friends, faced then overcame. Deborah is a firm believer that something magical happens when you read a book together.
