The Official Description: This year, Kevin is going to the school costume show as a princess. His costume is perfect but he knows that the best costumes are authentic. So he is outraged that none of the knights will partner with him and complete the look. Things don’t go quite a smoothly as he planned. Next year, there is only one thing for it. He will just have to be something even more fabulous.
This is a heartwarming and funny story about imagination, diversity and persevering at expressing your fabulous self.
Just the facts: juvenile, easy reader about being yourself! And doing it with style!
This book made me grin from start to finish. Be you Kevin! Be anyone you want to be!- Kinzie Things
My thoughts bit:
This story was SO much fun! Kevin wakes up one morning to “costume day” at school! He decides he wants to be a Princess.
Throughout his day Kevin discovers several things. He can’t seem to find a knight… and being a princess is no fun without one. But if some people think you shouldn’t be a princess…that’s their problem!
The illustrations in this book are colourful and amusing. Kevin is a lovely fellow, forthright and independent and fearlessly himself. He’s a great character to welcome into any child’s life.
By the end of this little book, Kevin has discovered that being a Princess is pretty difficult… and he doesn’t much like walking in high heels… so! Next year, he’s going to be a MERMAID!
Loved this book! It would be a great addition to anyone’s library!
