"Did you ever wish to be a princess? Have you ever wanted to wear a pretty pink gown, sing to your forest animal friends, and attend a fancy fairy-tale ball? Then meet Beatrice--she represents what being a princess in the Middle Ages was really like. Pink gown? More like itchy wool! Sing to animals? Think archery and horseback riding instead. Beatrice's life is no fairy tale, but she will show you that fact can sometimes be more fascinating than fantasy. This humorous, brightly illustrated book offers an irresistible comparison of fairy tale vs. real life in medieval times"-- Provided by publisher.

Nonfiction with a sense of humor is hard to pull off but this book does it very well. Even though it's a princess story, boys would enjoy this story. Great historical information at the end, as well.
