The Princesses Have a Ball Hardcover – September 1, 2002. Bateman (Farm Flu) gives this retelling of the 12 dancing princesses a shot of girl-power, despite a rather relentless rhyme scheme.

The Princesses Have a Ball Hardcover – September 1, 2002. by. Teresa Bateman (Author). The dozen royal daughters wear out their shoes every night not because they ve been ballroom dancing, but because they ve been playing basketball. In Cravath s (He Saves the Day) ink-and-wash spreads, the king appears as a pudgy suburbanite in a polo shirt and an ermine cape. He protests that the girls should be dreaming of a prince/ and your wedding day.

The Princesses Have a Ball Paperback – January 1, 2002.

Teresa Bateman (Goodreads Author), Lynne Cravath (Illustrator). The Princesses Have a Ball would be a good book for an early reader, and would be great for a read-aloud book. I liked the idea of The Princesses Have a Ball, and its message that girls' athleticism is in no way unfeminine - that it is something to be encouraged. This book teaches young girls that they don't have to dance or dream about their princes, but can have fun playing basketball or any other sport.

by Teresa Bateman & illustrated by Lynne Cravath. Maybe princesses used to dream of marrying princes and dancing at formal balls, but here are twelve contemporary ones with something else in mind. A bit of nocturnal spying tells the tale-the princesses have taken to spending every night shooting hoops on an underground court.

Lorna Bateman Embroidery, Medstead, United Kingdom. Elizabeth, Helen and I had a wonderful time meeting customers from all over the world, USA, Canada, France, Germany Belgium, Holland, Italy, Spain and Scandinavia amongst others - a real melting pot for all lovers of stitching and craft. My youngest fan was 7 years of age and absolutely made the show for me :-) I even managed to do a bit of stitching whilst on the stand and finished a new little needle book, which we will market as a new kit asap.

Despite the king's concern that his daughters aren't spending enough time thinking about the princes they will one day wed, the little princesses aren't concerned as a helpful cobbler, pairs of perfect shoes, and a special ball begin to aim things in the right direction.

This year my 7 year old discovered she now enjoys basketball and spends time working on her dribbling and shooting skills. So this book was GREAT to show that girls can enjoy the sport of basketball. It is also a great "modernization of the traditional Dancing Princesses story. Every year on my child's birthday, I write her a letter to summarize her year. I tucked this year's letter into this book and put it in her box. She will get 21 books and 21 letters when she turns 21, and this book will help her remember the year she got in the game and worked on her basketball skills.
As a father of a 3-year old girl and another on the way, I'm concerned that our culture "tells" young girls that their worth is dependent on what other people think about how sexually attractive you are. But sports seems to be one way that women can feel good about their bodies without having to worry about what others think about how they look.

At any rate, this book has become one of my favs because it helps my daughter learn about the "true" meaning of the term "Princess" apart from the Disney meaning of the word. That is, she can define herself according to her standards rather than someone else's.
I bought this for my tomboy of a 3 year old daughter, and it was the hit of Christmas! She LOVES it! And I love the message that girls can be girly and sporty!
A re-telling of the fairy tale about princesses who disappear from their rooms each night and dance the night away. These princesses, however, have a different passion. The local cobbler figures it out and helps the girls reveal their secret to their father the King. Consequences are not as dire as the girls had feared, and they all live happily ever after. Bonus: the princesses are all labeled as sisters, there’s diversity in skin color and appearance among them, AND at no point does the story feel compelled to give an explanation for that.
I love fairy tales, and "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" has always been one of my favorites. I read this book to my daughter and we both loved it. It's a twist on the traditional fairy tale; the princesses sneak away to play basketball, rather than to meet up with hunky princes. It's a major shot of girl power! They don't need to wait around for men to amuse them: they amuse themselves! Go, girls!

My daughter, however, was confused about the multicultural princesses. I explained about families being about love, not color of skin, and she seemed satisfied with that. Personally, I enjoyed the fact that the princesses were all drawn with their own "personalities" (if that can be shown in a picture) and weren't the cookie-cutter princess stereotype of blonde hair, blue eyes, size two...

The rhyme scheme has a few rhythmical flaws, but flows pretty well. The third time (!!) reading it, I did it as a rap, which my daughter really enjoyed.

All in all, a delightful read and a nice way to show girls that they can make their own destinies and enjoy whatever they want to enjoy.
I feel so lucky to have a copy of this book. They really need to put it back in print so more people can discover it. Such a fun story. It's in heavy rotation in our house.
