Featured book recommendation from Yueqi!
“I would recommend the book The Princess Imposter by Vivian Vande Velde. You should listen to or read it, as the book is SOOO funny! The book is about a fairy named Phleg and a human princess named Gabriella. Phleg and Gabriella switch places for three days. What will Gabriella do when she’s with the fairies? And what will Phleg do when she’s impersonating Gabriella? Read this HILARIOUS book to find out! I would recommend this book to Grade 2-6 kids. “
