Reviews from Around the World "The illustrations in this book were adorable and completely appropriate. They added a lot to the tale. The kids' facial expressions were terrific. The text was placed all over the pages too because several pages has multiple images. This made the book more interesting to read."—Kate Unger, Amazon
"This is a great book for all the little girls out there who do not want to be a princess, but get out there with her friends and play. She is a brave, fearless little girl who plays pirates, rescues wild animals, runs faster than airplanes and just has fun trying new things. Until the day that her friends want to use the big tree in the backyard as a pirate ship."—Clara Johnson-Hicks, Goodreads
