When a little girl pretends she's a real princess, her imagination soars and her bedtime routine is transformed into a majestic affair. While practicing curtsies on her way to bed, she gets the royal treatment: chocolate cream éclairs, glass slippers, ladies-in-waiting, a tiara—even a bubble bath with a special fluffy towel to dry her toes. Being a princess is so much fun! But at bedtime, there's one thing a little girl—or a princess—always gets: a kiss before saying goodnight.

The narrative is structured as a series of rhyming questions: “[W]hen Princess leaves the ball, // is she practicing her curtsies / while dancing down the hall?” She eats éclairs, takes a bubble bath, wears a feathered bathrobe and indulges in similar pleasures on her way to bed.

Cheery watercolor illustrations add to the magic of this short bedtime story, blending the little girl’s reality–her pajama-clad parents following behind her–with the fantasy of an elaborate court laid out before her.
