Kate Lum lives in Canada and is the author of WHAT which won the Children's Book Award in 1999. Sue Hellard lives in London and is the illustrator of many wonderful books for children. This is her first book for Bloomsbury - but it was such fun working on it we already have another in the pipe-line!From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3-Bored with their lives of pampered luxury, Princesses Allie, Mellie, and Libby enviously watch three servant girls "Out in the fresh air, doing interesting things" and decide to swap jobs for a day. The young royals eagerly run off to work in high-heeled shoes and towering bouffant hairdos, but after polishing the windows, scrubbing the fountains, and washing the dogs, they begin to realize just how hard they must toil. Their afternoon and evening chores seem even more daunting, from making butter to shearing sheep, but they persevere. The next morning, although exhausted, the formerly spoiled young ladies take pride in their accomplishments: "Say! I think- I made this bread!" With newfound empathy for others, they proclaim new rules: "WORK no more than you can do" and "SPEND an hour every day just SITTING in the gardens." Hellard's watercolor illustrations humorously depict the mayhem created as the princesses try, often unsuccessfully, to keep up with the ever-growing list of duties. Witty details, such as a chicken making a nest and laying eggs in Princess Libby's voluminous hair, are sure to please. Children will enjoy the role reversal in this lighthearted tale.
