Prince Puggly of Spud and the Kingdom of Spiff; Paul Robert Weston

Prince Puggly of Spud and the Kingdom of SpiffPrince Puggly of Spud and the Kingdom of Spiff by Robert Paul Weston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The plot is almost beside the point here - it's the words, the typography and the idea that matter.

Ostensibly this is the story of Prince Puggly (who is found by the people who run Spud after the previous King runs off) and his, um, eclectic wardrobe combinations, and the story of Francesca, the relatively normal (albeit pajama clad) princess in the sartorially snobby Kingdom of Spiff.  Their lives in each kingdom and their relationship are relatively predictable but... read this out loud.  Look at the way the words look on the page (I can't even begin to mimic them here).  So.Much.Fun.  This will be a great read-aloud and read-along.

The missing star is because this was an ARC, and I'm hoping there's color in the illustrations!
