I liked how Chumbalina is no ordinary princess, that she doesn’t care about being beautiful or finding a handsome prince; all she wants to be is herself, embracing her individuality. The thing that her “individuality” includes eating nothing but junk food, which concerned me as this might promote gluttony and obesity. Kids do not need to gorge on sweets, and I’m glad the author thought that as well by adding a twist that the eating contest would consist of eating nothing but vegetables.
Again, the illustrations were cute and funny. I’m not too fond of princess stories, but it was alright.
My rating: 3 stars
