Many girls dream of being a princess, but fewer know how a genuine princess actually spent her time. This book allows young readers to travel back in time to accompany a young princess through a typical day in her life. When does she wake up, what does she wear for which occasions, what does she eat, and what kind of etiquette does she follow? What does a princess learn, how does she travel, and does she ever have time to play? Lots of flaps that open and detailed illustrations invite readers into the baroque era to get to know the royal family and even the princess’s little dog.

About the Series

WWW Junior is a unique invitation to discover the world in a playful way. The junior series features a compact format with large, movable flaps for kids thirsty for knowledge. Centered on who-what-how questions, the titles in this series take on fascinating subjects. The questions of 2- to 4-year-olds are to a large extent answered by information contained in the illustrations, complemented by clear, friendly texts.

The Author

Andrea Erne was born in 1958 in Stuttgart, Germany. She studied German, politics and cultural studies and began her career as an editor for a daily newspaper. She then moved to a large children's book publisher, and later began working freelance as an editor and author for book publishers and newspapers.

The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
