Would You Rather be a Princess or a Dragon? by Barney Saltzberg - OPTIONAL

Saltzberg, Barney  Would You Rather be a Princess or a Dragon?  PICTURE BOOK Roaring Brook Press, 2016.  $16.99  Content: G.  

The reader is shown the difference between being a princess or being a dragon.  If you are a princess you wear pink and walk straight.  If you are a dragon you are green and act wild.  Some days though, a princess wants to be wild too and dragons have a little princess inside them as well.  

The illustrations are very simple and have clean lines.  The story is cute and has a funny ending when the dragon pretends to eat the princess.  I like that the princess can be more than just pink and royal, but she can try new things.
