Follow Princess Cupcake Jones in her first book, Princess Cupcake Jones and the Missing Tutu. In this adventure, when her beloved tutu goes missing, Cupcake learns the importance of tidying up and putting things in their proper place. Join Princess Cupcake Jones as she searches her palace in hopes of finding her tutu and discovers hidden treasures along the way.
My Thoughts: I absolutely adored this story and loved the author's story even more. Author Ylleya Fields wrote this book after she noticed the limited number of children's book featuring African American characters. Using her daughter's image and personality, she created the fabulous Cupcake Jones. Cupcake's vibrant personality shines throughout this wonderful tale and the book is in one word ADORABLE...absolutely adorable.
The story is great full of colorful images echoing the personality of this little princess. The rhythmic text grooves throughout the story from the very first page to the last. Does Princess Cupcake find her tutu? Well, you'll have to read the book to find out.
