Jane, the Princess of 8th Street, has many royal duties to attend to. Between having tea with her “ladies-in-waiting” (her doll collection), keeping up with her studies (Math for Monarchs and Pink Power are two of her favorite books), and dealing with her horrible toad of a brother, Jane doesn’t often have time to venture from her palace or socialize with other young royals.But one day, on a trip to the market, her mother insists that Jane go play in the park with the other children. Jane is shy around the other young lords and ladies, and things become even worse when she is confronted by Samantha, the Princess of 10th Street. Will the two princesses be able to overcome their differences? Will Jane finally make a friend?This cute and clever picture book proves there’s more to being a princess than just dresses and tea parties.


When I was kid, growing up in the suburbs I was fascinated by reading the first Clifford book and thinking about living in a city block and what that might be like for a kid. This book really brought me back to it. This little princess, lives on 8th street and is very imaginative and shy. Through some fun and promotion her mother encourages her to play at the park with some others and finds the princess of 10th street has quite a bit in common. This is a lovely book for breaking out of ones shell to run and find friends. Every page is filled with great royal vocabulary to encourage learning and would be a great read for any time or one in dealing with the history of kingdoms. Very cute.
