I read my daughter feminist storybooks. For the curious, this is Princess Smartypants by Babette Cole, the story of a motorbike riding, dragon owning, roller discoing princess who doesn’t want to get married :)
a moment of silence for Babette Cole’s masterpiece: Princess Smartypants, which featured a butch goth lesbian princess with looks and $$$ but all she wanted to do was chill wit her menagerie of lovecraftian horrors so she turned a pompus asshole into a toad when he didnt take the hint
Princess Smartypants by Babette Cole was my FAVORITE book growing up. Her Royal parents insist she finds a husband, but Princess Smartypants values her independence, motorcycles and dragon over marriage, going through a slew of silly suitors to be Prince. I must have read it a zillion times and then forgot about it for years. Ordering a copy on Amazon now! The illustrations were ideal too.
