Princess Cupcake Jones Won't Go To School! - a bookwrap

'Tis the season to eat cupcakes....fa la la la la la ... la la la la!!!


"Princess Cupcake Jones Won't Go To School".... Authored by Ylleya Fields and Illustrated by Michael LaDuca

Drum roll please ...

The book is filled full of fabulous illustrations that are colourful, vibrant and full of action and expression.  They make the text come alive and highly enrich and enhance the storyline.

Unwrapping the story...

This fairy-tale, starring Princess Cupcake Jones, is sure to give you a platform you can use to ease your little one's fears of the dreaded "I don't want to go to school syndrome."

Her beautiful Queen Mother, with grace and patience, lovingly encourages her little daughter that all will be well as the reality of going to school sinks into her daughter and produces a melt-down.  The Princess resorts to playing sick and even hiding under her bed to avoid going.  This spunky little gal has made up her mind that she will be no show at school no matter what. After gentle persuasion and brute determination on her mother's part,  Princess Cupcake Jones finally relents and goes off into her unknown.

Written in rhyme the storyline points out the feelings of a scared little girl who wants to stay home and play with her toys and be with her mom and not venture out of her comfort zone.  When she finally is persuaded that she can do it, she dresses up in her best tutu, faces her fears head on, and discovers school isn't such a bad place after all.  

The book is interactive and hidden on each page, in each illustration, is a word to find.  
Please visit the website: www. PrincessCupcakeJones. com, where you will encounter activities, tips and valuable information.  I highly recommend this book.

This is the second book In the Princess Cupcake Series, the first being, "Princess Cupcake Jones and the Missing Tutu."

Who did the wrapping?

Ylleya Fields has three daughters and a son. While looking for books to read to her eldest daughter (when she was 2), Ylleya was struck by the limited number of titles featuring African American characters. Blending both of her daughter's images and personalities together, Cupcake Jones was created. Born in South America, Ylleya currently resides with her family in Cleveland, Ohio. She enjoys writing and is currently working on new Princess Cupcake Jones stories. Ylleya's first book "Princess Cupcake Jones and the Missing Tutu" has won the Mom's Choice Award, the Gelett Burgess Award, a Family Choice Award and a IndieReader Discovery Award.
