What Does a Princess Really Look Like?
Written by Mark Loewen Illustrated by Ed Pokoj
Chloe dreams of being a ballerina princess. But today she is not practicing her twirls or leaping from room to room. Today she crafts her very own princess.
The project quickly becomes more than a simple princess drawing. Chloe discovers that princesses are not just about beauty and glitter. They are strong, vocal, and determined.
And, as she shares her work with her two dads, Chloe also notices that her princess isn’t perfect! She learns that her imperfection -her quirk- makes her unique.
Chloe realizes that she did not create the princess she wanted to be. Instead, she based her princess on who she already is.
