Eight Princesses and a Magic Mirror by Natasha Farrant, Lydia Corry (Illustrated by)

These are very much the same as fairy tales but they have a twist that makes them more enjoyable.

Norton Young Readers and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on May 5th.

An enchantress sends an enchanted mirror out into the world.  Each girl that finds it uses it for their quest and then loses it again.

Princess Leila of the desert protects her people from the king with the black-and-gold banner; Princess Tica takes a crocodile for a pet; Princess Ellen explores the high seas; Princess Abayome puts empathy and kindness above being royal; and in a tower block, Princess saves her community’s beloved garden from the hands of urban developers.

The mirror helps them do it. I enjoyed this flight of fantasy.
