'The Princess Fables' by Marc Clark

Book blurb:

Eleven inspirational stories for young girls who may still dream of being a Princess. Each Princess embarks on an adventure of self discovery and along the way, learns about the importance of trust, devotion, courage and the power of love. Originally told by a father to his young daughter, these classic tales transport little girls to a time and place where they are the heroines and can create their own happy endings. Every delicate pen and ink illustration reflects the classic fairy tale drawings of the late 19th century.

Read an excerpt:
It doesn't matter how many times parents say, "No means No," one of the first things a child learns is that's not true. "No," doesn't always mean "No," at least not when it comes from a grown up. Mom might say, "No, you can't have that." But if you ask her a few more times or ask really nicely or say you'll clean your room or help set the table, there's a good chance she'll say, "Yes." And if Dad says, "No, baby, not right now. Daddy has work to do," you can crawl into his lap and snuggle up to him and sooner or later, there's bound to be an "Oh, alright, but just this once." Now, you have to kind of admit that when little girls are still very little and round and super cute and their hair is all curly and their cheeks are chubby and on top of all that they really are princesses... well they're usually cute even when they are saying, "No." But this doesn't last.
Then, when they get a little older and their "Nos" take on a little more weight and a little more power, the cuteness of it all kind of gets drained away. Well, that's what happened.

Available in ebook and paperback
