(** Article first published as Book Review: Not Just a Princess (A Mia Book) by Mary Lee on Blogcritics.)

I like it when authors email to me asking whether I would be interested in reviewing their book and then mentioning there are no obligations at all for me to review if I would like to get a complementary copy of their book. Authors like this are the ones that I am most likely to post in my reviews to as many commercial websites I can! Not joking but I personally think because I am not pressured or rushed to revert with my feedback, I am more likely to read the book faster and helped them spread out the word on their book!

Anyway, of course I do look into whether the book is suitable for my family-friendly theme and my preferance as well before I decided to review it. So, without further delay, please read my review as below...

That cute little girl in princess-y costume with a pirate hat got me hooked! My boy is into pirates every now and then lately so I thought I should give this book a try and see how it turns out, after all, I do have my daughter whom I can read this book to in future!

Each page that I turned just got me more excited and anxious to see what's coming up next as I can't wait to know what is Mia up to! By the way, the illustrations in this book is just gorgeous! 

I love the imagination of this cute little girl who pretends to be a pirate, mermaid and so on, it just makes me smile because it totally reminds me of my 3 years old boy! One second he is pirate, then he is a robot and then he is a fireman, and the list is endless! I'm always encouraging my boy to play pretend as I love seeing and be amazed at how far his imagination can go!

In summary, this is an easy to read book with beautiful illustrations that will capture your heart and I recommend it as I believe a child's imagination should be encouraged! Don't believe me? Read this inspiring quote below:

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create." ~ Albert Einstein

This sounds like a really cute story. I still like to read children's stories from time to time. I would definitely read this one.
