The final scene hopes to be empowering but only manages to emphasize gender-role stereotypes...As a story to teach girls that their proper roles are as appearance-conscious, selfless helpmates, it succeeds insidiously.

Synopsis

Calling all precocious princesses! This series is sure to be a hit with girls who love a big dose of humor and adventure with their princess fix.
 
Rules for Being a Princess:
 
1.         Your name must be on the Fairy Godmother’s list.
2.         You must always be elegant and graceful.
3.         A unicorn must choose you.
 
When Grace arrives at Tall Towers Princess Academy, her name isn’t on the Fairy Godmother’s list of students. She isn’t elegant at all—not even her curtsy is graceful. And all the other girls are sure she’s headed straight back to her tiny, messy kingdom. But one unicorn knows better. He’s clumsy and dirty and the perfect match for Grace! And together they have tons of fun. But the other princesses aren’t convinced Grace belongs at the academy. Can she prove that being a princess is about more than just being perfect?
