    I really liked the concept of not only alternating but duelling stories, and I liked the way the art played along And I liked the way the brother and sister eventually find a path they both like However, the story itself ended up being not that exciting it was very heavily gender stereotyped and both of the two narrations seemed flatter and less interesting than the stories real kids come up with.

    A book my 6 yr old as well as my twin 3 yr olds loved A solid reading level 1 book, this cute story keeps all ages engaged with the bright colorful pictures and cute story We loved the differences between boys and girls and how they fought over their choice of story topic It was also nice to see the conflict resolution at the end with a compromise A great addition to any children s library.

    A fun, engaging idea One young storyteller wants to create a typical princess fantasy complete with ponies and flowers and pretty dresses the other wants a big, ugly monster and lots of battles How will they tell the tale and arrive at Happily ever after While the gender stereotypes are probably true for most audiences, I found the fact that the girl was all about the pretty happy love story and the boy totally into the dude stuff gross monster, fighting, etc was a bit irritating The illustrations also were a bit jarring as the glossy fairytale aspects seemed so out of harmony with the rather cartoon ish looking kids popping across the page now and then This will probably be a hit with kids, but I wish it didn t promote the gender stereotypes quite so much.

    Hilarious book one of my kids all time favorites Perfect for writing units, for perspective, for girl boy tensions, and for all out laughs.

    When two students with vastly different interests are forced to write a story together they manage to collaborate while maintaining their individual styles This book looks like a typical fairy tale with the exception of the cover art Open the front page and it quickly becomes apparent this is not your traditonal story Two protagonists engaged in a school report partnership quickly engage the reader with their clear and satirical version of events Boys who immediately groan when you show them the cover are quickly engaged and both boys and girls get the jokes This is a fun book and won the Washington Children s Choice award in 2007 Reviewed by Library Media Connection August September 2005 This review is lukewarm at best pointing out that the girl changes from a passive to an active character while the boy doesn t change at all While LMC may be correct when considering the deeper social message, students seem to appreciate the clear differences drawn between the way girls and boys look at events.Publishers Weekly February 21, 2005 Both Library Media and Horn Books suggest this book is glib and sexist, Publishers Weekly points out the power of the bold colorful illustrations and the resulting cooperation that develops between protagonists to confound those expecting a traditional ending Publishers Weekly suggests the book has a sophistication which could be used to lead a discussion on gender stereotyping and the benefits of teamwork These reviews are interesting taken in their totality They clearly point out how differently we as adults interpret humor and stereotypes.

    This is what happens when you let a girl and a boy collaborate on a story You get tenderhearted princesses, ponies, evil giants, and big dudes on motorcycles who rush into save the day and get rich on the gold thread the princess spins But princesses these days aren t content to sit back and spin gold thread while the big dudes on motorcycles get all the glory Hell no They hit the gym, pump some iron, and become warrior princesses Hell yes And then they kick the butts of the giants that have invaded their kingdoms and stolen their ponies But, big dudes on motorcycles don t really like spinning gold thread either, so they make an invisibility cloak and they go off to rescue the ponies Warrior princesses don t like getting left behind so they go with the big dudes on motorcycles and they rescue the ponies together after fighting about who gets to do it The giant is terrified and jumps off a cliff Then, the WP and the BDOM go back to the kingdom, get married what , and have a beautiful daughter, no, son, no, daughter, no, son ad infinitum.This was a most fantastic picture book Not only is it a non traditional butt kicking princess story, BUT there s also a motorcycle dude in it No less than three talented illustrators contributed to the success of this story The princess illustrations are all lovely and fraught with unicorns, while the motorcycle dude features lots of dark violence, katanas, and volcanoes exploding all around him So funny.

    This book received the Monarch Award last year as it was voted on by the children of Illinois Together, a girl and boy must write a story together Once upon a time there was a princess a cool muscle dude who loved all her beautiful ponies who rode an awesome motorcycle But a giant came and started stealing them The dude came to fight the ugly, smelly giant with his mighty sword She turned gold into thread while she cried for Buttercup, her favorite ponyInteresting enough, the book has three total illustrators With the active collaboration between illustrators, the book s pictures are amazing and very interactive The girl and boy bring the book to life and truly invite the readers into the text A good selection to pick up next time you are at the library

    Format Picture BookInterest Level Grades 3 5In this book a boy and girl take turns telling a story The girl starts the story with a princess and her ponies While she tells the story boy interjects with his own comments until he finally can t stand it and takes over telling the story This is a book that both boys and girls will enjoy It s a fun book to read This would be a good book to use to introduce and practice partner storytelling One student starts a story and then their partner takes over Then they take turns adding to the plot.

    Clever whimsical battle between a princess and a cool motorcycle dude as each attempts to tell their version of a fairy tale I read this aloud to students in kindergarten through the sixth grade and, as they say, a good time was had by all Even adults will delight in the wit expressed through the dueling characters dialogue.Illustrations are appealing Hope to see from this author in the near future

    My students love this book I really don t At all One of my students chose this book as her library choice for the week and asked me to read it during choice time in the classroom Only a few pages in, we had a crowd of listeners, several of whom had heard the story before and one who joyfully recited all of the words from memory And, for me, THAT was a joy because this particular child isn t typically seen as a reader in our classroom But, this book showed the sheer love he has for the written word, at least in this text The struggle I have with the book is its sickening reinforcement of gender stereotypes that girls are ooey gooey romantics obsessed with princesses and ponies, and boys are overwhelmingly interested in tough, buff muscle dudes, motorcycles, and fighting While the girl narrator and her story princess push back against the idea of female subservience by pumping iron and becoming a Warrior Princess , at the end, I still felt a little ill at ease by all the gendered bullshittery Yes, I made that word up, but it seems appropriate With one author and THREE illustrators, I expected Why I don t know My bad I acknowledge and appreciate the way the book helps solidify a love of the written word for some of my students, but I wish the book didn t so willfully reinforce gender stereotyping This will never become a whole class read aloud in my classroom, but I will read it at the request of individual readers, though they can expect my interjection of questions like, Do all girls like ponies and all boys like fighting monsters How could we change the story to better reflect what we like or to show that not all boys or girls like the same things You get the idea.
