"Berger's comic-book-like panels for the action sequences are exciting, and one of Viola's karate chops is practically 3-D." School Library Journal

Princess in Training

Joe Berger (Illustrator)
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt / 2012

Princess Viola is great at skateboarding and karate-chopping, but she’s lousy at the royal wave, walk, and waltz. The king and queen are not pleased. What’s a princess to do? Attend the skill-polishing Camp Princess, of course. In the end, it’s a good thing Viola is made of tougher stuff. Who else will save the day when the green dragon comes along? Joe Berger’s zippy illustrations use comic book-style panels and show off ZIP! ZUP! ZOOM! sound effects. This sweet, funny picture book is just the ticket for spunky princess-loving girls who can appreciate a glittery book jacket!
