Eleanor Wyatt, Princess and Pirate

Eleanor Wyatt and Harrison Dwight

Rachael MacFarlane; illustrated by Spencer Laudiero



A young girl discovers that playtime is as boundless as imagination in this empowering, rhyming picture book.

I can be anything that I want to be,

I'm a princess, a pirate, and I'm also just me!

Her name is Eleanor Wyatt, and some days she's a princess, some days she's a pirate.

Eleanor's parents have taught her she can be anything she wants to be, from a ninja to a cowgirl to a fairy with wings.

She can even star in her own book! Join Eleanor and her friends as they romp through tea parties and sword fights and to discover the best treasure of all—being yourself!
