Grace from the best-selling book, Amazing Grace, is back! This year two girls will be selected as princesses in the town parade, and Grace can't wait to be one of them. It's the perfect opportunity to dress up but how, exactly, should a princess costume look?
Grace asks her teacher for help, and soon the whole class is learning that there's more to princesses than pink dresses and frills. From Kenya to China and from warriors to spies, princesses are a multicultural and multitalented bunch, and there are just as many kinds of happily ever afters both for the royals and for Grace's community and its princess parade.

"Initially excited about wearing a fairy-tale costume, Grace realizes that world folklore and history offer more varied and dynamic interpretations of the princess theme. On parade day, Grace and her classmates dress as royalty from different cultures; Grace wears West African Kente robes." -- Booklist
