The Book

 What a delightful and inspiring book from debut author Zibby Owens! Princess Charming is a young, adorable, determined character that never gives up.  

She tries hard to find her passion and "thing" in life but nothing seems to fit.  She tries baking, hip-hop, cartwheels and discovers that they are not for her but the key in the story is that she "tries" again and again and again to find what she is good at and loves!  

The palace agrees to host a Superstar's event where Princess Charming becomes a superstar herself and discovers the one thing she is excellent at. Her "thing" has finally been found and she excels at it!   

The illustrations are truly wonderful.  They are colourful, expressive, full of action, humour and fun! This book teaches that you don't have to be perfect or be like anyone else just be who you are created to be... YOU!   The book offers readers a positive message of hope and celebration!  I highly recommend it and look forward to more books from this talented author.
