The Anti Princess Club is a series of books which follows four best friends; Emily, Martin, Bella, Singh, Grace Bennett and Chloe Karalis and they are just 'sick' of being treated like damsels in distress.
They are a thoroughly good read and the style and illustrations by Sarah Davis fit the whole scene in the books. They are published by Allen and Unwin and are a first time series from Australian author Samantha Turnbull.
They read as a book which is really for children of that age, when they know what they want, but just can't seem to stop adults and others treating them in a stereotyped way. It gives also a real sense of meaning to some of the trials and problems around making friends, families, teamwork and courage of your own convictions.
We also love the notes for teachers which are available on-line and free to use alongside the books, they cover a wealth of learning opportunities.
