The Real, True Dulcie Campbell

A Picture Book by

A little girl discovers her true identity

Dulcie Campbell knows she's a princess. The woman with old bunny slippers can't be her real mother. The man with scratchy whiskers isn't her real father. The boy who teases her isn't her real brother. And the dog who sniffs her isn't hers, either. Dulcie sets out to live the life she was born for. "Take a warm jacket!" calls the woman. "Don't forget your book!" calls the man. "I thought you said you were leaving!" shouts the boy. The dog drools. Off to the barn (the royal palace) goes Dulcie, where she perches on a bale of hay (her throne) to wait for things to right themselves. Then she opens her book of fairy tales and learns that the life of a princess isn't all that she's dreamed - and that the one she's been living may not be so bad after all.

Wry, funny, and utterly charming, Cynthia DeFelice's story is pictured to perfection by R. W. Alley.
