The Daring Prince Dashing - Children's Book Review

I received book for review from Sky Pony Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Prince Dashing is daring and will stop at nothing to find a new friend! Prince Dashing bathes with crocodiles, eats while dangling upside down from the tallest trees, and toasts s’mores by dragon’s breath. The night of the royal ice cream social, he meets a girl as adventurous as he is. But at the stroke of bedtime, the girl hurries off, leaving behind her mysterious stick. In his usual daring way, Dashing ventures out to search for the stick’s owner. He gallops by groups of thugs, tromps past toothy crocodiles, and eventually stumbles into the zoo. Will he ever find his friend? Follow Dashing and one equally daring girl in this humorous tale of fearless fun and friendship.

My Review:

Written along the same lines as a classic fairytale, The Daring Prince Dashing tells of an ornery prince who is full of animation and movement.  It seems that no one quite gets him, until he meets a girl at a gathering.  She, too, is impish and full of antics.  After causing quite a stir at the gathering, the girl leaves.  However, she forgets her pogo stick and leaves it behind.  The prince must know who this girl is.  He feels connected to her and goes on a hunt to find the girl with the pogo stick.  The forest animals help with the hunt.  The prince ends up finding the girl and they forge a friendship.  This is a witty and engaging book for children.

I'd get this one just to see him toast smores by dragon's breath. My son would get a huge kick out of that, I am sure. :)
