Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Poor princess! When suitors saw her feet, they ran for the door before even getting to know her. And in another land, far away, a kind prince had a similar problem: although he was funny and kind, he also had a huge nose that scared off every maiden he met. But a serendipitous meeting on a ski slope teaches this adorably flawed (and well-matched) pair an important lesson:<br>   I am what I am and that's all right with me.<br>  I don't have to be different, I just have to be.<br>  I don't want to be somebody else. No sir-ree!<br>  I am what I am and that's all right with me.<br> With whimsical surprises, lavish art, and a fantastical story about love and acceptance, this picture book will delight readers of any age.<br>

A lovely princess with enormous feet and a charming prince with a huge nose meet on a ski lift and, while their flaws are hidden, fall in love.

Horn Book Review

A princess with too-big feet and a prince with an oversize nose each cannot find a mate--until they meet under circumstances that hide their most obvious features. Because their charm and warmth take center stage, a match is made even after feet and nose are revealed. Good-humored verse and expansive double-page-spread pastel illustrations present the story's message in a nondidactic way. Copyright 2010 of The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
