" What was it really like to be a medieval princess? Heos doesn't get too technical (although there's a bit more information in the Author's note). We do get a fun overview of what the average princess had to work with, from stinky moats to archery in the woods. " said.

" Great introduction to what life was really like as a Medieval Princess. " said.

"Who Wants to Be a Princess?: What It Was Really Like to Be a Medieval Princess is an excellent picture book for those drawn to the allure of fairy tale/Disney-style princesses. Bridget Heos uses the well-known traits of those princesses as background knowledge for comparing more historically accurate depictions of medieval royal life. Although some aspects of that medieval life were grim and gross, Heos explains it all with humor, accompanied by Migy’s Disney-esque illustrations. This book will enrich students’ understanding of medieval royalty without ruining what they love about the classic movie princesses." said.

" As princess stories go, this is a very good one that takes about what medieval princesses could expect versus what Disney would have us believe. Educational in a fun way. My first grade daughter lived it and asked for more like it. " said.

" An interesting look at the REAL life of a medieval princess, as compared to the fairy tales type we all imagine. " said.

" I cannot wait to hand this to adults who are getting a wee bit tired of their kids'/nieces'/nephews'/tiny friends' obsessions with princesses. This is a great nonfiction picture book that tells readers exactly what it was really like to be a medieval princess--it's far less fancy and flowery (and far more interesting) than Disney suggests. " said.
