I don't normally like princess stories, but this one is an exception. In fact, it's now my and my daughter's favorite picture children's book. The illustrations are gorgeous and the story is just the right balance between being gothic, different, and funny. I also like that it's a commentary on having good penmanship (although I'd read it 10 times before I realized that bad penmanship led to the rose mixup). I ended up buying this book for my daughter's birthday because we loved it so much (or perhaps I bought it for myself).

This book starts out delightfully wicked, introducing us to Princess Amanita's garden of dangerous plants. She loves all things menacing, so when a neighboring prince brings her roses, the thorns captivate her. Unfortunately her handwriting is terrible (teachable moment for my son!!) so her note to his gardener asking for rose seeds doesn't produce the expected results. In the process, Amanita learns something about herself, and about appreciating a few non-dangerous things.

I told my husband that this book has some of the most gorgeous art I have seen in a picture book yet, and I stand by that claim!

I also kind of want some of Amanita's clothes...
