The Princesses Of Chadwick Castle Adventure is an eight-book series about two princess sisters, Elle age 12, and Belle, 10. Great for readers who love Cinderella-type fairy tales and European princess stories. The stories are ideal for bedtime reading for girls 6-8 with color illustrations a parent can enjoy together with a child. It's also useful for an education in art appreciation for homeschoolers especially for readers 9-11.
The story starts with the first book, While Princesses Sleep and diaries their adventures which culminates in Book 8. While Princesses Sleep opens with the Princess Elle discovering a strange sound in the night. Curious, she determines the reason for these mysterious noises and starts the adventure with her sister, Belle. Something is afoot at the castle and they must find out what this is. However, finding the truth behind the secrets they stumble upon leads them to strange answers? What sort of trouble will the princesses get themselves into? Pretty, Scary Lady box set continues the tale.
This children's illustrated story is written from a first person point of view. In the princesses' adventure they are also introduced to the world of ballet. The series features artwork from the art masters whose works have entered the public domain and are no longer restricted by copyright. The spin-off series (coming soon) will deal more with ballerinas and ballet stories.
Who is the princess castle series for?
As a homeschool mom I have always enjoyed reading to the younger kids during read-aloud sessions and what better time than right before bed? For young readers ages 6-8 the series makes an excellent bedtime story. I wrote the series primarily for girls age 7-12. I hope to expose young readers to artwork from master artists of the world. My hope is that the princess series will be a children's illustrated classic someday.
