"You heard what she said… and she means it. I thought the tower was the only place for me. But then you came. Somehow, seeing how excited you were made me want to escape. But now…"
"I'll protect you, Sadie! I have a sword, a unicorn, and kick-butt hair!"
"It's true, your hair is kick-butt. And I trust you."

Who better to rescue a princess in distress than a princess not in a dress? Katie O'Neill's very sweet take on how a princess can be just as capable and daring-do when it comes to staging a rescue and helping another princess overthrow her villainous sibling, finding true love with each other in the process, certainly has its heart in the right place, but I couldn't get completely past the thin storyline and stilted dialogue. Nice, clean, colourful art though, again a very cartoony style that's obviously influenced by many a current TV show.

If the aim of this is purely in helping educate teeny-tinies about sexuality, then I think it hits the mark perfectly, job done. As the delightful John Allison has insightfully written on the back cover (not on each one obviously, that would take forever) "… a big-hearted fable where the boxes we're expected to fit into are simply dragons to be slain."

Beyond that, whilst it is lovely, and fun, it's basically a very simple story and that dialogue is so badly in need of loosening up. It's all a bit Emma Watson's enunciation in the first Harry Potter film…
