Publisher's Summary

She's just a New York City girl living with her artist mom...

News flash: Dad is prince of Genovia. (So that's why a limo always meets her at the airport!)

Downer: Dad can't have any more kids. (So no heir to the throne.)

Shock of the century: Like it or not, Mia is prime princess material.

The worst part: Princess lessons from her dreaded grandmere, the dowager princess of Genovia, who thinks Mia has a thing or two to learn before she steps up to the throne.

Well, her father can lecture her until he's royal-blue in the face about her princessly duty, no way is she moving to Genovia and leaving Manhattan behind. But what's a girl to do when her name is PRINCESS AMELIA MIGNONETTE GRIMALDI THERMOPOLIS RENALDO?

Listen to the whole Princess Diaries series.

Does not belong in the 7 and under catagory!

I bought this for my daughters (4 and 6). Luckily they lost interest before the discussion of the conditions that would have to be met before she lost her virginity. The book is more interesting than the movie, but not as inocent.

Amazing!!!!!

This is an amazing book. Do not be fooled by the movie this is WAY better!!! It may have a sappy tital and a pinkish aperance but it is an amazing book that any non-girly-girl will LOVE!!! As for all the reviews about it is a bad book for young girls, I think its just fine. Im 11 and loved it, but I guess you shouldnt let a 7-year old listen to it. Overall, AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

Anne Hathaway should narrate every book!

A great (and quick!) read. Mia's obliviousness is not over the top and adds amusement to an already fun and entertaining story. After listening- I now believe that Anne Hathaway should narrate every female-lead story from here until audio books end. The best I've heard in a long time!

excrellent narration

First, get all three books! They tie together seamlessly.
Very funny.
Ann Hathaway's reading is superb. She puts you right into the character and her situations. She is able to change her voice to the point that it seems there are at least 3 different readers..
The only down side to the books is the poor girl's obsessions with her figure (or lack of one), and "French kissing". Despite these negatives, I rate this as excellent family listening. Even our 12 year-old son was hoping there would be more books in this series.

My wife adds that even after having seen the movie first it made the book even more enjoyable because the casting of the movie was not that far off for each of the characters except for Gran mere. We will definitely be listening to this book many more times.
