Once again, I read this picture book on my iPad mini, which is the perfect eReader for a book of this length (27 pages total). I took a look at the book as well on my iPhone, but I preferred it on my iPad mini, because of the spacing and the size.
Author Jason Sandberg has put his imagination to good use again. The illustrations are especially appealing, with just the right amount of detail. The expressions of the main characters, pompous King Plunder and helpful Julietta, as well as of the other characters, skillfully convey various emotions, so that parents and children could discuss what characters are feeling or thinking. Inspired by the Disney princess stage his daughter went through, the author has created a picture book with a fairy tale feel to it. The New Crown would be a wonderful bedtime story for children ages 3-6, and a terrific read-alone book for children ages 6-9. You're never too old for picture books, and I enjoyed reading The New Crown, which is colorful and clever and altogether captivating.
Kid Connection is a fabulous feature hosted by Julie from Booking Mama on Saturdays. Even though it's a few days past Saturday, I'm adding my review link to this feature. :)
