Publisher's Description

“No one can come to the surprise party, Daddy. What will we do?” Princess Joy can’t wait for her birthday. There will be treats, games, and an enormous cake with pink icing! But when the other princes and princesses can’t come, and princess Joy finds out, she comes up with a surprising plan to fill her day with special guests and unexpected gifts. Will it work? Her idea comes from a parable Jesus told about a party a lot like hers.

Author Bio

Jeanna Stolle Young is a Daughter of the King that lives in Southern California with her dashing husband, Bruce, her two sweet princesses, Danika and Emmalynn and two daring princes, Christian and Kenton.  God gave her the vision for this series that has caused her faith to grow through watching Him work.  These are her first published children’s books.

Jacqueline Johnson was born into royal heritage and is a grandmother to three little princesses, Catherine, Alexandra Grace and Megan Joy and four princes, Zack, Maverick, Payton and Christopher. She delights in filling their hearts and imaginations with stories filled with Godly character and the concept of becoming a child of the King for eternity. Her devoted husband and castle are perched on a hill on the Pacific Coast in Southern California.

Omar Aranda studied Fine Arts in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he was born. Many top publishers and companies worldwide have commissioned him for projects including story artwork, comics, and character design. He started his career as an artistic painter but now devotes all of his time to illustrations for children's products.

A lesson in humility and friendship is taught in the children's picture book Princess Joy's Birthday Blessings by Jeanna Young and Jacqueline Johnson, one of five books in the series called The Princess Parables. In this story, the usually upbeat and optimistic Princess Joy is emotionally crushed when all the princesses and princes of other kingdoms turn down an invitation to attend her birthday party. Joy's father, the king, tells her the party will go on, even if only Joy's sisters are in attendance. To insure that it will be a grander event, invitations are sent to all the people of the kingdom--farm children, workers, trades people, and craftsmen. On the big day, dozens of people arrive, and all are carrying personal gifts such as hand-painted pictures, pet animals, or good things to eat. The children play games, watch puppet shows, and eat birthday cake. In a spirit of magnanimity, Princess Joy gives her presents away to the poorer children in attendance at her party. It turns out to be the best birthday she has ever had.

Luke 14:12-14 is quoted in the back of the book, explaining that celebrations should include those who are handicapped or poor. Also, a letter from Princess Joy to young readers explains the blessings of being kind to other people. The book's artwork is vibrant with bright colors and the words are not too difficult for young readers. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley,
