GPA October's Principal's Book Of The MonthPrincess Grace by Mary Hoffman
Illustrated by Cornelius van Wright and Ying-hwa Hu
In Princess Grace, Grace has the chance to be a princess in a school parade. But what does a princess do, apart from wearing beautiful clothes and looking pretty? Does she have to be pink and floaty, with a crown? Grace and her friends start finding out about princesses in China, Egypt, the Philippines and Zimbabwe - and on the day of the parade, helped by Ma and Nana, Grace's school has the most interesting float of all. (Mary Hoffman)
