What People About Princessland

"Romy slowly comes to realize that sometimes the greatest journeys occur in one’s own imagination. Tanaka’s soft, dreamlike illustrations make a great complement to Jenkins’s text. ... A delightful ode to imaginative play that young dreamers are bound to enjoy."  - School Library Journal

"Full color spreads done in soft pastels show intricate details of diverse, smiling princesses with pets, flowers, jewels, and sweets. A feast of imagination."—Booklist

"By the end of the day, though Romy has described the destination in detail, she's sad to realize the cat hasn't actually taken her there. But of course, the Lady Cat has done just that, pushing Romy to travel by imagination. Expressive paintings blend the Princessland in Romy's head with city scenes as she and Lady Cat explore." -- Kirkus
