The Ordinary Princess

Author: M. M. Kaye

This was a fun little read aloud for our family (boy age 9, girls ages 8 and 6).  I decided on this book based on some good 5 star reviews on Amazon.  It was a shorter book (128 pages) so that appealed to me.  I was worried that my nine year old son might not like a book about a princess, but he did because it was not a girly type of book.  The author tells the story of a princess who was born and given the gift of "ordinary".  It seemed that she may never get married because she was not extraordinary in any way.  In a cute little series of adventures and twists she does find a special someone who turns out to be exceptionally special in the end.  Fun story for the whole family.
