From author Emma Wunsch and illustratorJessika von Innerebner, The Princess and the Absolutely Not a Princess is the first chapter book in the Miranda and Maude series.

Princess Miranda does not want to go to school. She wants to shoe shop, plan parties, and decorate the castle.

Maude cannot wait for school. She loves rules and social justice and getting good grades. She also loves hard-boiled eggs, much to Miranda’s dismay. When a tense first week of school results in Maude getting excluded from the Royal Birthday Party, Maude decides she’s found her first fight for social justice: a birthday boycott.

This hilarious, heartfelt, illustrated chapter book series teaches empathy and reminds us that your very best friend could be one desk away.

“Brilliantly relevant, playful, and compassionate.” —Abby Hanlon, author of Dory Fantasmagory
