Top of the Shelf: Princess Hyacinth

princess hyacinth Princess Hyacinth (The Surprising Tale of a Girl who Floated) by Florence Parry Heide and illustrated by Lane Smith. Heide's words and Smith's images merge effortlessly together, telling a fantastical tale of the young Princess' dilemma.  While Princess Hyacinth never finds a way to stop her floating propensities, she does meet a boy with a kite and enjoys the experience of friendship.  A pleasing, satisfying tale.
