"A heartwarming story about a girl and her new dog. Eric Walters writes a lighthearted, endearing tale of two parents and a child bringing home a retired racing Greyhound and making him part of their family. Detailed illustrations that help highlight the story's plot and emotion, as well as the inclusion of interesting facts about the breed of dog, add depth to a story that, in itself, is full of fun. For children learning to read chapter books, and particularly for those that enjoy reading about dogs, Prince for a Princess is definitely a good choice. Highly Recommended."--CM Magazine
