  Miranda and Maude: The Princess and the Absolutely NOT A Princess

Miranda and Maude: The Princess and the Absolutely NOT A Princess

This series opener is a short and sweet chapter book, decorated with von Innerebner’s child-friendly illustrations as well as the drawings that Maude makes in her journal. Wunsch weaves in lessons of empathy and withholding judgment in an accessible, nonpreachy way. She ably captures and expresses feelings of misunderstanding and loneliness, all while creating laugh-out-loud scenes in which the girls ramp up the competition . . . This unlikely combination of royalty and social justice delivers fun, learning, and laughs.

Princess Miranda does not want to go to school. She wants to shoe shop, plan parties, and decorate the castle.

Maude cannot wait for school. She loves rules and social justice and getting good grades. She also loves hard-boiled eggs, much to Miranda’s dismay.

When a tense first week of school results in Maude getting excluded from the Royal Birthday Party, Maude decides she’s found her first fight for social justice: a birthday boycott.

This hilarious, heartfelt chapter-book series teaches empathy, and reminds us that your very best friend could be one desk away.

Miranda and Maude: The Princess and the Absolutely NOT A Princess will be published by Abrams/Amulet Books in August 2018.

At its core, this is a book about feeling different, making uninformed judgments about others, trying new things, and finding acceptance.
