Here is a Flip-Thru on YouTube:

"Outside of the silver glitter page edges that certainly evoke the feminine world of the princess, this book by Charles Solomon chronicles the Disney princess from 1937 to today - from Snow White to Moana - and is a fantastic history on the fairy tales behind the characters. It also includes beautiful, never-before-seen concept art of how the characters were originally envisioned and how they ended up, plus a history lesson on their development. It's great for anyone who wants to teach their kids about princesses, but also emphasize the depth of animation artistry as well." -- IndieWire

"The Disney Princess?is a must-have for Disney princess fans, historians and those interested in the multifaceted "how" and "why" behind Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, Merida and Moana...Solomon's thorough and well-researched commentary is a breath of fresh air, making this read less textbook-y and more leisurely. Beautifully packaged with ribbon markers, dual finish and impressive holographic edges, The Disney Princess is the ultimate dreamy, definitive Disney princess book" -- The Laughing Place
