Series: Princess Parables
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. She has a passion for moms of princesses and knights training up the next generation for Christ. She is a speaker and blogger at www.theprincessparables.com
There are more than 13 books in the Princess Parable brand.
Jacqueline Kinney Johnson is a former tribal missionary to the Kuna Indians located on the Colombian border in Central America. The vision for The Princess Parable Series was born in these jungles. She is the wife of Pastor Ralph Johnson and the mother of two daughters and the grandmother of three princesses, Catherine, Alexandra Grace, and Megan Joy and four young knights, Zack, Payton, Maverick, and Christopher. She delights in stirring young hearts and imaginations with Godly character and the certainty of becoming a child of the King for eternity. Her passion is mentoring and equipping dedicated young women for life, marriage, motherhood, and beyond. She lives in a castle perched high on a hill above the Pacific Ocean 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.
One day Grace's favorite kitten, which she has named Poppy because it just popped into her life out of nowhere, disappears. When the kitten cannot be found anywhere in the castle, the five sisters mount horses and ride near and far in search of it. They interview townspeople, explore different trails, and even talk to sailors and craftsmen. Alas, no one has seen a lost tiny kitten. The only place left to search is in the dreaded Dark Woods, which the sisters enter on their quest. It is scary business, but ultimately they discover the lost kitten hidden in a fallen log, alone, cold, and wet. Grace wraps the kitten in a cloth and brings it back to the castle and gives it milk and a spot near the warm fireplace. Everyone, including the king, rejoices over the return of the lost kitten.
The illustrations in this book are Disneyesque, with large-eyed animals and princesses in flowing gowns and tiaras. At the end of the book is a section titled "Parable Thoughts" in which Grace makes sure the readers draw the comparison to the Bible story (which is printed in its entirety on the last page). This is part of a five-book series featuring each of the five princess sisters. The books are easy to read, colorful, and they tangentially provide a paraphrased lesson from Scripture. Dr. Dennis E.

Mary5 Stars Out Of 5Sweet encouraging storyJanuary 3, 2014MaryThis is a sweet book series with parables of Jesus that have been worked into princess stories for little girls. It is a great alternative to Disney, and I love the meaningful, encouraging message in the story. I originally bought 4 for my 4 girls, then went back and bought the 5th so we could have the whole collection. Also got one for my niece who seems to have everything. :)

Of course, the 4-year-old does, too ... and they love Princesses. Kindness is always a good virtue to teach.
