Isabella lives in a big, beautiful palace, but she's not your ordinary Princess. Nanny McNellie and Isabella's father the King want her to wear "a silly frilly dress, a silly frilly coat, and snappy strappy shoes." But Isabella has other ideas. She wants to wear "raggy baggy pants, a raggy taggy shirt, and flippy floppy shoes." She also enjoys hunting for worms! A great story about responsibility and being yourself.
