    1. Tadiana ✩Night Owl☽ on said:

      This one s for all you fairy tale lovers out there This is a straight up, no holds barred fairy tale, with lovely princesses who wear crowns and beautiful gowns and genteelly toss golden balls to each other and never get dirty or sweaty well, actually, this story is mostly about the youngest sister of those princesses, whose fairy godmother took one look at the list of all the gifts this princess received at her christening, like Charm and Courage and Grace and Wit, and promptly decreed, This p [...]

      Violets are blue,Rosemary s green,When I am King,You shall be Queen This was my absolute favorite book when I was a young girl Amy, a smart, plucky, decidedly NOT classically beautiful princess, is given at birth the magical gift of being ordinary Years later, Amy reaches marriageable age Since she isn t beautiful and vapid, her parents are quite worried whether any prince will have her, and there s some rash talk of giving her as the prize in a dragonslaying challenge She doesn t like this idea [...]

      I don t read many children s books, but I was drawn to this one by its very beautiful cover which was actually the work of the author.The other illustrations in this edition were pleasant enough done by Faith Jaques.Princess Amethyst was expected to be given the same princessy gifts by the fairy godmothers as her six elder elder sisters and she did indeed receive charm and wit and grace and courage But then Crustacea, the most important fairy godmother arrived Crustacea was in A Very Bad Mood Sh [...]

      This was one of my favorite books as a child I recently reread it in a fit of nostalgia I was disappointed that the fantastic 1986 cover has been replaced by some hot mess picture of an elven girl in a green dress What happened to the 80 s princess with freckles, frizzy brown hair, and a ridiculously ornate purple dress Reading the book as an adult, I was so relieved to read an earnest fairy tale for once So many fairy tale princess books on the market are hideous, smarmy, wink wink tales that b [...]

      9 10 Long and long ago, when Oberon was king of the fairies, there reigned over the fair country of Phantasmorania a monarch who had six beautiful daughters.They were in every way all that real princesses should be, for their hair was as yellow as the gold that is mined by the little gnomes in the mountains of the north, their eyes were as blue as the larkspurs in the palace gardens, and they had complexions like wild rose petals and cream This is not their story Barbie clones with perfect hair [...]

    6. ♛Tash on said:

      Mind you folks that this is straight up fairytale released in the 80 s , and the target demographic are tweens, so the writing is classic children s book than YA I love this precious book nonetheless This is a story of Princess Amy of Phantasmorania, who has mousy brown hair and a freckled nose, because she was gifted with ordinariness at birth obviously,her fairy godmother was drunk view spoiler When she reaches marriageable age, her parents despair because who would want to marry an ordinary [...]

    7. Becky on said:

      Oh my goodness, this was such a delightful book I m glad that I picked it up sometimes it s easy to discount these kinds of books, but this one is a perfect example of why it s silly to do so Princess Amy is the seventh daughter of King Hulderbrand and Queen Rhodesia All throughout history, the seventh daughter has been the most beautiful, the most extraordinary princess of them all but not this time This time, the most powerful Fairy, Crustacea, is out of patience when she arrives, delayed by t [...]

      From the authors note at the very beginning I was pulled into the most deliciously whimsical book Five gloriously, shining stars for this amazing book bumped it up one it is one of the sweetest stories I have read in a long time with a beautiful style, delightful characters, and a sweet and funny message The beautiful and amazing illustrations are also absolutely charming This was the perfect bedtime reading so soothingly and fun What a joy fairy tales are What a sadly overlooked and underrated [...]

      Quaint, witty and adorable fairy tale romance novella about an Ordinary but very likeable princess and how she finds her HEA Would have give it 5 stars if only it wasn t a clean romance 4.25 stars

    10. Lisa Vegan on said:

      Last night I was so tired that I found myself crying for pretty much no reason Just those small soft tears that come out and surprise you I m five weeks into the job of my life so far, anyway and I was exhausted And scanning my shelves for something soothing to take to bed something that would both settle my mind and make me happy I settled on The Ordinary Princess.I remember borrowing and borrowing this book from my primary school library I can see even now the shelf it sat on Years ago I found [...]

    13. Elsabet on said:

      This was the sweetest story It s very short, but that s just fine, and it has an innocence that is so hard to find these days Amy is such an endearing character You sympathize with her at once because so few off us are drop dead gorgeous and wish her the best I first read this when I was eight, and I loved it I read it again when I was fifteen, and discovered that I loved it even than my eight year old counterpart did And I still love it That is probably the best way to tell if a book is good i [...]

    14. Jessica on said:

      As delightful as I remembered The kids really liked it, too This is sort of a rare thing these days, in that it s a romance for children Princess Amy s age is never talked about, but the entire book she s trying to dodge a horrible arranged marriage, and falls in love on her own Sweet and charming, and I d forgotten what a hilarious satire it is of classic fairy tales.

    15. Emma Clifton on said:

      What a delightful and sweet little book I do love epic stories with action and danger and adventure, but now and then, I need something that s just happy and adorable This book is a perfect spring read

    16. Jeanette on said:

      It s cute and sweet, with a worthy premise It was released in the 1980 s with a YA designation for teens To me, it would be preteen audience fare, even in that era Some of the names and the fairy tale grandiose designations for some of the under characters I rather think this dates the whole and in an age tech ravaged children might not fly quite on the same path intended to this frolic Maybe I m wrong but it is SO simple a tale that the cutesy cutesy names might seem almost babyish to the major [...]

      Originally reviewed on The Book SmugglersOnce upon a time, there was a faraway kingdom called Phantasmorania, ruled by a benevolent King and Queen This happy royal couple was also blessed with the birth of six beautiful daughters, each princess beautiful than the last, with rippling blonde hair, jewel blue eyes, and the fairest complexions of palest cream And, each princess was given the name of a precious stone Diamond, Opal, Emerald, Sapphire, Crystal, and Pearl One fine day, the royal cannon [...]

    18. Cheryl on said:

      Found in a charity shop, so reread again Didn t know this as a child, but I ve read it at least three times as an adult to try to make it up to young me Reminds me a bit of The 13 Clocks and Many Moons by James Thurber, or The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame or even The Light Princess by George MacDonald if you like any in my list here, read the others too.

    19. Chelsea on said:

      One of my all time favorite books, and one I reread regularly When Princess Amethyst is born, her slightly creepy agreeableness prompts the oldest and crankiest of the fairies to give her the gift of ordinariness And what a gift Amy s fate suddenly takes a sharp turn, which results in mistaken identities, dragons, fake portraits, jewelry made from trees, and grandly named woodland animals.Charming, quirky, and one of those rare books that presents a fully formed world quite removed from our own [...]

    20. Ekaterina on said:

      This is such a cute and lovely book This book is one of my favorite books because every time I read the book, I know that I will feel happy reading the book I also love how the book is like a breath of fresh air It s like the original fairy tales, but it is fun and light It isn t dark like some fairy tales.

    21. Diane Lynn on said:

      An interesting little fairy tale by one of my favorite authors I bumped it up to 4 stars because of the wonderful illustrations by the author I didn t know MM Kaye could draw so well I think young girls would like this story.

    25. Chi on said:

      I hadn t read this in years, but when I found it again, I finished it in one sitting I m glad to find and report that this book is still as sweet, charming, and wonderful as it was when I first read it as a teenager This is definitely a book that I d want my daughter to check out, when she has the patience to read something than a picture book.

    26. Amber Lynn on said:

      WonderfulMy daughter just finished this book and she absolutely loved it I highly recommend for young girls who live to read.

    27. Katy Noyes on said:

      What a refreshingly contemporary feel to this princess needs a husband story In true fairytale style, the seventh princess is blessed with gifts by a host of fairies, but as her father fears, it goes wrong and one slightly bitter fairy blesses her with ordinariness So no golden curls, stunning beauty and sublime grace for Princess Amethyst Alexandra Augusta Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne Her dark hair and freckles make Amy no ordinary princess can be called anything else stop every suitor from p [...]
