Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein.. The darker shade of pink, where pretty meets pretty looks-obsessed in too-young girls today. Is it time to kill the Princess monster? What hath Disney wrought! Or is that tiara you’re sporting just a phase?

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Orenstein takes us on a tour of the princess industrial complex, its practices as coolly calculating as its products are soft and fluffy."

The New York Times

"Intelligent and richly insightful."
