Princess Emma hails from a long line of perfect princesses, Snow White was her great-great-grandmother, Beauty is her grandmother and of course her mother is The Queen. She is finally attending the Royal Princess Academy, following in their perfect footsteps. Princess Emma is not your typical frilly pink and proper princess. She likes to kick a soccer ball and dream of dragons rather than improve her royal skills. She especially dislikes Princess Posture class, she would "rather read a book than wear it"! Her unique princess style comes in handy when she has to save her classmates in the annual Princess Contest. And again when on a field trip she helps figure out why all the dragons are ill. Her best friend Rapunzel has always known what a great person she is, now everyone else knows too!
Young princesses everywhere will enjoy reading about Princess Emma who really is a lot like them!
