Princess Peepers & Tuesday Mourning

I love this book. WRitten by Pam Calvert and illustrated by the incredible Tuesday Mourning; she is the best.

The pictures are so beautiful, and the story is sweet. A well written tale of a fashionable Princess with fancy spectacles who tries to fit in. But, of course, quickly learns she'd rather stand out.

Jake recently got glasses, and said he felt silly. I had a hard time convincing him being different isn't wierd, it's just different. And cool.

Jake hates all things pink-ish, shiny, and frilly. Even runs from it. but I found him yesterday in our chair reading pRincess Peepers. When he was done he smiled and said, "Hmmm. cool."

Love it.


Kacie set the book on her pillow and pointed at the pictures for 35 minutes, straight! That's huge for an attention span of negative 50 million.


TuesdayMourning is my favorite. Check her out...




nOW buy the book.

thanks cally-co, you're the sweetest and I'm so blushing. Funny thing is that Atticus loves it too and I wasn't expecting that. He's been obsessed with my glasses forever and now he points at all the glasses in the book and especially loves the prince wearing them at the end. fun stuff.(oh and Lindsey, yes, it's me :))
