I think in order to be a really great picture book, the book needs to appeal to both kids and adults. In my perfect picture book world the kids would love hearing the books and the parents would love reading them, at least the first hundred times. Princess Hyacinth the Surprising Tale of a Girl who Floated by Florence Parry Heide illustrated by Lane Smith is just such a book.
In addition to being a fun to read funny book. I love that the words are all over the page.
And the illustrations crack me up! This is the princess weighted down with her heavy princess clothes.
Would I recommend it? Definitely!
