Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Two talented newcomers create a funny, fractured fairy tale - and an exuberantly illustrated lesson in manners - that will amuse even the most imperious little readers.<br> <br> <br> Get me the best dress in the world for Prince Quince's ball tonight. And that's an order!<br> <br> Kitty Princess likes to think that she's the cutest kitty in town, but really she's the rudest. Even long-suffering Fairy Godmouse has had it with her demands, and now she won't help Kitty find the perfect dress for the ball. But when Kitty stomps out into the real world, she learns to her dismay that poor etiquette won't buy the royal treatment she expects. Can anything save her from ending up a royal laughingstock?

Horn Book Review

After offending her Fairy Godmouse, imperious Kitty Princess gets hers when she's forced to wear a newspaper dress and cucumber shoes to the prince's ball. Predictably, Fairy Godmouse comes to the rescue when Kitty apologizes. While Kitty's behavior modification is never in doubt, Carlow thankfully throws a wrench in the expected happily-ever-after ending. The dazzling collage illustrations give the text a boost.
