tall tales tuesday – The Princess Academy by Shannon Hale

another find from A Mighty Girl top read alouds pick.  another great story – and don’t let the title mislead you.  this is not a typical disney-fied princess book.  Hale follows themes of family, community, tradition, education (and the broadening of horizons through learning) set in a world with a little fantasy.  looking forward to the rest of the series.
