Book Details

Romy wants to go to Princessland, where all girls are princesses. In Princessland, there are castles and royal balls, sparkling rivers and flower crowns. Romy’s pet, the Lady Cat, promises to take her there. They spend the day climbing trees, dancing in the marketplace, and weaving daisy chains beside a fountain. Then the Lady Cat leads Romy home. But Romy didn’t get to visit Princessland . . . or did she?

In The News

"Full color spreads done in soft pastels show intricate details of diverse, smiling princesses with pets, flowers, jewels, and sweets. A feast of imagination."—Booklist

"Shades of shell pink and moss green add elegance to Tanaka’s (Blanket & Bear, a Remarkable Pair) muted spreads; the town where Romy lives rivals Princessland for misty allure, as the girl describes elegant nightly balls and princesses who fight dragons while riding horses and lions...there’s plenty of wonder in the real world, and imagination and storytelling offer surefire tickets into other ones—sentiments that are even easier to accept when they come from a talking cat."—Publishers Weekly

"A delightful ode to imaginative play that young dreamers are bound to enjoy." —School Library Journal
