Summary: When three little girls get together for a play date, they can’t agree on what to play—princess, fairy, or ballerina. Each one makes a compelling argument for her favorite, but the other two refuse to give in. The fairy suggests a contest, but should it be a flying contest, a throne-sitting contest, or a balancing contest? Pretty soon, no one is speaking to anyone else. A croaking frog and a rainy day provide some much-needed distraction, and wings, tiaras, and ballet slippers are tossed aside in favor of some happy puddle-stomping. 40 pages; ages 4-8.
Pros: A good lesson in friendship and compromise. A princess, fairy, AND ballerina on the cover is sure to attract the attention of many readers.
Cons: Just a bit gender stereotypical.
