The Thinking Girl's Treasury of Real Princesses

Goosebottom Books’ first series, The Thinking Girl’s Treasury of Real Princesses, came about when author Shirin Yim Bridges was inspired to turn her niece’s fascination with fairy-tale princesses into exposure to more valuable role models.

The books combine the romance and enchantment of princesses with a message of youthful female empowerment. These are princesses who didn’t just sit around waiting to be rescued. Against great odds, they made their own lives, and changed their worlds.

The series features princesses from different cultures around the world, and different epochs in history. The books are richly illustrated with photographs and maps, and lovely pen-and-watercolor paintings by Albert Nguyen, whose art helps to bring the stories of these fascinating girls to life.
