Tess the Princess Dress by author Lia Brent is a charming tale about a princess dress. The pages are bright and full of color. There is a definite kind of energy that jumps from page to page, a kind of vitality that will be recognized and enjoyed by many ages, from the very young to those who are very young at heart, if not so much in actual years. The voice that rises up from these enchanting pages is one that is sound and intelligent, in addition to being friendly, but at the same time not talking down or trying to forcibly educate anyone. This is entertainment for the simple enjoyment that one is able to get from entertainment. The author is able to make a point while still ending the story on a good note.
I really enjoyed this children’s picture book; it had a lot of life in it. What I really enjoyed most was the combining of real pictures with animated pictures. It is my belief that this is a unique juxtaposition that works well, and is something original in its distinctiveness that I haven’t come across before in other children’s books that I have picked up over the years. If you happen to be looking for an engaging, creative tale, then look no further. You have certainly found it in Lia Brent’s Tess the Princess Dress. This book is sure to bring out the princess in your little loves, and in your other loves that are living out their youth again vicariously.
