Picture Book Month: Friends

3 Nov

3Although not your typical friendship book or your typical princess story. Princess Hyacinth: the Suprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated is a true story of adventure and friendship. The princess has a terirble problem – she floats and without being weighed down by gold weights, diamond pebbles and the heaviest jewels in the kingdom, she could quite possibly float away. Eventually, sitting in the castle becomes too much for her and through a series of events floats outside. She is offered assistance by a young man named Boy and with the help of his kite she is now able to float any day she wants.  I love that although Boy “rescues” her, Hyacinth is not the type of princess that needs to be rescued, but what she does need is a good friend and that’s what Boy and Hyacinth become – good friends!
