Books About Royalty, Fit for a King

April 27th, 2010 by

A princess who can read thoughts. A prince who doesn’t think of anyone but himself. A secret princess. A girl who doesn’t want to be a princess. And, of course, a kingdom at war. You’ll find all of these stories of noble proportions in these books about royalty (in no particular order):

  1. Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris (Karen’s pick)
  2. Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede (Nancy’s pick)
  3. The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman
  4. The Royal Diaries series
  5. Igraine The Brave by Cornelia Funke
  6. Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan
  7. The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine
  8. The Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
  9. The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain
  10. Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage
  11. The Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander
  12. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

If you’ve read any of these, send in your book review. Or send in a review of your favorite book about royalty.

UPDATE 5/19/10: We revealed the answer to our Royalty Mystery Book Theater in the “Royal Flush” Podcast, so take a listen if you want to know the answer. Or just tune in if you want to hear Karen hold a conversation with herself. For reals.
