First Sentence
Imagine it: One day you're just this normal ninth grader with too-big feet and too-small breast, whose biggest concern is passing Algebra and/or whether or not your best friend's hottie brother knows you're alive. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Me being the HUGE Princess Diaries fan, loved this new book in which Mia introduces you to the many princess of the world and teaches the concepts on how to become a perfect princess. From how to eat, talk, stand, make an incredible entrance, or how to wear a tiara, Mia creates another funny page-turner with these hiliarious questions of what makes a perfect princess. From old princesses, young princesses, real princesses, to fiction princesses, Mia analyzes how each exhibits the sings of a true princess. My favorite had to be WuZeTian(I'm Asian and Chinese). Couldn't believe she was in there. Mia just about covered every princess I could ever think about.
Like Princess Lessons this book should probably only be read by true Princess Diaries fans.(I did find it slightly better than Princess Lessons) I really enjoyed it, though I could tell if someone would find it kinda boring if they weren't a true fan. You don't have to read this book to get the series since nothing is connected. It is just a fun book for those of us who dream of becoming princesses one day.

As opposed to informing you on how to eat, dress, walk, talk, put make-up on, etc., like a princess as the previous PRINCESS DIARIES book, PRINCESS LESSONS, spoke of, PERFECT PRINCESS informs you on different subjects, such as how to wield the incredible power of the tiara, how to know when your prince deserves to be whacked in the head with a shoe, what it takes to achieve immortality...or at least make an unforgettable entrance, why allowing the populace to eat bread and not just cake is of critical importance, what to do as a houseguest should you find a pea under your mattress, what makes a princess perfect, etc.
As someone who absolutely loves the work of Meg Cabot, I found that I absolutely had to have PERFECT PRINCESS. While I recommend this book to all die-hard fans of Meg Cabot's work, and her PRINCESS DIARIES series, it is not a necessity, and is NOT a continuation of any of the PRINCESS DIARIES books, it's simply somewhat of a self-help book for Princesses, or people who feel they are Princesses, or people who would like to live like a Princess.

Perfect Princess: A Fun Read Fit For a Princess Feb. 19 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just who in scociety is an appropriate role model for rising princesses like ourselfs? Ask Grandmere. From Anastasia to the princess and the pea, you'll definately find at least one role model, as long as you don't like Xena. Of course, the most appropriate role model for anyone is Grandmere. Or Buffy or Princess Leia. Just don't tell Grandmere. In addition to this, Paolo and Sebastiono explain the princapessa's reign over fashion and which princesses looked like mods (models), Tina fills you in on the married princesses, Lilly dishes on powerful princesses, and Michael talks about his ideal pincesses. Sprinkled throughout are random acts of princess (if you have milk in your tea, it's NOT VEAGAN, Mia) and commentary by Mia. I found some of her comments rude, insulting, and not funny, but aside from this the book was a delightful easy read.
If you're a fan of the series or enjoy the history of princesses you would enjoy this book. Dec 10 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
This was an interesting read, if you want to know more about princesses, including fictional ones. It was not integral to the series however. Though it did have snippets written from each character like the Princess Lessons book did, I found this one to be a little less about the characters and more about the history of the princesses. That being said, I did really enjoy it, especially learning more about princesses I did not know of. Michael's contributions were very interesting to me as well. If you're a fan of the series or enjoy the history of princesses you would enjoy this book.
Okay, not great--- or even good. June 17 2009
By frecklegirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was just okay.

It's a book of essays "written by" the characters of Meg Cabot's ever popular Princess Diaries series. I liked the "Random Act of Princess" parts. This is advice that can be followed, and I really appreciated it.

The light gray writing is irritating. I know that it's supposed to be the light pink, like in the print edition, but I don't have a copy in print. I have the Kindle edition. I don't want to strain my eyes reading light gray type.
