Review
Grades 4-7 In the land of Eliora, in an enchanted castle, Darling Dimple is promoted from her scrubbing job in the under-cellar to work as an Under-Presser on Princess Mariposa’s personal staff. Almasy’s narration brings into sharp relief the various personalities both below and above stairs. The brusque efficiency that makes for a smoothly running castle is evident in Lindy’s sputtering voice, ripe with righteous indignation as she supervises Darling’s work, and in the never-ending optimism of Cherice’s wardrobe and fashion advice to the princess. When Darling discovers a closet of old dresses that disguise the wearer, a magical canary, and a plot to steal the kingdom, Almasy dials up the suspense discreetly, allowing the story to reveal its layers of secrets one at a time. Prince Baltazar, who’s behind the plot against the kingdom, trembles with false feeling as he woos the clueless princess. This is a delightful production sure to please fans of Jessica Day George and Shannon Hale. -- Thompson, Mary (Reviewed 3/15/2017) (Booklist, vol 113, number 14, p71)
