Warrior Princess is a children’s picture book written by Kris Ayers and illustrated by Tina Unrein. In the small, hidden magical village of Feliz, all residents are openly welcomed with a smile. The Warrior Princess of the village, Kiana, spends each day and night patrolling the borders, ensuring evil does not enter. While wearing her brightly colored tennis shoes, Kiana runs fast, day in and day out, resulting in her bright and colorful shoes becoming dirty and worn. Unable to run in her broken shoes, the princess becomes depressed, but thanks to Kiana’s beautifully-colored feathered friends, she is soon able to smile once more.
Themed around teamwork leading to success, Kris Ayers has presented a story of integrity, honesty and positivity in working together to keep the village a place of peace and happiness. With the people feeling so safe and secure, it was easy to forget that the positive energy the villagers felt on a daily basis was due to the tireless work and efforts of the Warrior Princess. It is not until Kiana is unable to perform her selfless tasks any longer that the villagers feel the knock-on effect, with evildoers breaching the perimeter and delivering ill will to the people of the village. The friends of the princess saw her distress and heard her troubles, with all willingly able to help with the problem at hand.
A questionnaire at the end of the story helps the young reader think about the messages within the pages they have just read. I enjoyed the positivity which came from the words and beautifully colored pictures on each and every page of Warrior Princess, and wholeheartedly recommend it to be read by young readers aged 7-12 so that they know how teamwork, friendship and an eagerness to help your friends will ensure you are rewarded with a smile.
