Booktalk: Pistachio has always known she was a princess. When a mysterious gift turns up on her birthday, she’s sure it’s only a matter of time before her real parents, the king and queen of Papua, arrive to take her away. But in the meantime, she still has to eat her spinach and get up for school. Her school friends still laugh when she wears her new gold crown to class. And her annoying baby sister still makes endless trouble. What’s a princess to do?
Snippet: “Princess?” Gabriel sniggers. “Even an ugly old toad would want nothing to do with you!”
“To die for a mustachioed pistachi-toad! Ugh!” Jacob cries out.
They run away laughing like monkeys.
“Brutes! Peasants!” Pistachio screams. “I’ll feed you to the lions!”
