May 03, Jennifer Wardrip rated it liked it Shelves: This session it's Gundersnap's turn to be in the spotlight, in the midst of rumors of a dance with real Princes and a unicorn round-up!
Gundersnap has much greater concerns than Princes and unicorns, though. First, there's Gortle, a dwarf from Gundersnap's castle, who has come to keep Gundersnap company. In other kingdoms, dwarves are used as entertainment and are commanded to do tricks that Gundersnap considers rude and demeaning. To her, Gortle is a friend, and she is determined that he will be treated with respect.
This is hardly a problem in the South Turret, but the rest of Camp Princess is a different story.
Additionally, Gortle brings with him the news that Gundersnap's Queen mother has taken her own, personal, favorite horse into battle! Aside from being a dear friend, Menschmik, the pony, is hardly battle ready. How dare her mother take her pony! Who could even think about Princes and unicorns at a time like this? Suddenly, it's starting to look like things are more connected than they appear.
Gundersnap may have to hope that the rumors are not only true, but that both Princes and unicorns are more dependable than she expects. With another part of the tapestry complete, it appears that Princess Kristen is up next. Jun 27, Kit rated it it was ok.

It wasn't so much awful as horribly uneven. Rowling can mix modern and medieval Europe because her world is set up carefully as a culture within a culture. Lasky's world doesn't appear to have been set up as much as cribbed from various easily identifiable features from the Potterverse. Without any rationale, the story of girls at a special school for princesses in vaguely-Renaissance vaguely-Eur I only picked this book up because it was by Katherine Lasky, who's a Newbery-nominated author.
Without any rationale, the story of girls at a special school for princesses in vaguely-Renaissance vaguely-Europe except for the gossip magazines and makeup is just On the other hand, it has unicorns, princesses, and fancy clothes, so girls in the year-old age range might be willing to overlook the problems.
Sep 17, Jenna rated it really liked it. This is the second book of this series that i read when I was 12 and going through my rather late in life princess phase.
