I was hoping for something in the vein of [b: Giants Beware|12159923|Giants Beware! (Chronicles of Claudette, #1)|Jorge Aguirre|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1317068387s/12159923.jpg|17130936] when I picked this up, and while there's a little thematic overlap it's not quite what I wanted. It's extra silly, and maybe a good read aloud, but as an adult reader there wasn't much there for me. With books like Giants and [b: Harriet the Invincible|23281892|Harriet the Invincible (Hamster Princess, #1)|Ursula Vernon|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1412529734s/23281892.jpg|42819799] there's plenty there for me to laugh at or connect with, but with this one I was mostly just annoyed by the characters. There isn't anything wrong with them, it's just not for me or the age groups I usually work with.

Princess Serena (or Princess Pulverizer, as she prefers to be called) hates having to learn ladylike manners and would much rather go to knights-in-training school. Her father consents to this arrangement if she can first complete a series of tasks to prove she is worthy of taking on knighthood.

This is the first book in a series, which is increasingly obvious as the princess must complete eight tasks and barely finishes one by the end of this novel. In theory, I wanted to like this book, but I just felt like it fell a bit flat for me.

I'm getting more than a little sick of the idea that girls and women can only be a "strong female lead" if they take on male characteristics. This easily could have just been a book in which a child has to complete eight tasks before starting knight school; there was no need to make a big stink about how Serena/Pulverizer is the only girl to ever attempt this, blah blah blah. On the flip side, it was sort of refreshing that Serena/Pulverizer isn't a nice child and is continually having to learn a lesson about being a better person.

The story also relies a bit too heavily on flatulence and other such jokes to be humorous. I'm sure the target audience of elementary school-age children will enjoy that, but it wasn't for me. This book series already has other titles and given the author's popularity with other series, I imagine this one will continue to do well with its young audience. I, however, am not interested in reading more of these.

The illustrations reminded me of an animation style, which makes sense when I saw the illustrator has done work on numerous children’s movies. ( )

Like a few princesses before her, Princess Serena...err, um, I mean, Princess Pulverizer, doesn't want any part of BEING a princess. She desires to be a knight and that's that. None of this dancing about, learning to curtsey, deciding which fork to use and when. No siree, she's rather be in the thick of things and she's not afraid to let anyone know, including dear old dad, the King. Thing is as silly/sweet as her "special face" is, even he won't let her have it that easily and so, she's sent on a Quest of Kindness. How and when it ends rests entirely on her shoulders, but if this adventure was any sign of what's to come, it's gonna be good...

If you're a fan of spunky girls, shivering knights, dragons with chef intentions, and mighty stinky ogres, this ones for you!

Thank you to #partner @kidlitexchange for a review copy of this book.

A super cute beginning chapter book about a princess who does not want to be a princess. Instead, she wants to go to knight school and become a night. On her journey, she meets others who are not the stereotypical characters you would meet in a kingdom. The first book even includes grilled cheese!

My daughter, who is seven, absolutely loved this book. It fits her spunky personality and outside-of-the-box thinking. We are looking forward to the next books in the series. I plan on buying them for our home and my classroom library. A must-have series to include in elementary libraries. They will be read over and over again. ( )

Princess Serena is bored in princess school - and she hates her name! Call her Princess Pulverizer, because she's going to be a knight! Her father objects, but Pulverizer knows just how to get her way... at least she thinks she does!

This story starts out as a typical anti-princess tale, with wild Pulverizer wreaking havoc and demanding to be a knight. Things start to shift a little when her father, the king, points out that being a knight isn't all fun and games either. If Princess Pulverizer wants to be a knight, she's going to have to learn just as much as she would if she was going to be a proper lady. She'll also have to learn to be a nicer person, less selfish, demanding, and greedy. In fact, before she can even start learning to be a knight she must do eight Good Deeds!

Doing good deeds isn't as easy as it seems, and Pulverizer is soon in trouble. But with the help of an always-scared knight-in-training, his pet dragon (he's really gassy but he makes great grilled cheese) and Pulverizer's own determination, she just might manage to get started on her good deeds.

Balistrieri's cheerful cartoons show a red-headed wild child with plenty of pep and vim, but also a fair helping of ego. Pulverizer smashes her way through life, landing in puddings, getting trapped by stinky giants, and attacking dragons with little thought for the mayhem that surrounds her. Asides from a couple villagers in the background, all the characters are white. There's lots of gruesome and icky detail, with warty giants, disgusting slop, and plenty of farting and belching jokes.

Verdict: This is a little different from the average "tomboy princess wants to be a knight" beginning chapter. It's clear that Pulverizer doesn't think about anyone but herself, even if she's starting to learn that she might need friends by the end of the book. It's funny, but much more gross than Princess in Black. Hand this one to fans of Dragonslayers Academy or Time Warp Trio.
