Part of a large, multiracial royal family, Coh’s seven princess sisters couldn’t be closer—until they have “the biggest fight in the entire history of princess fighting.” Readers will quickly assess that it’s just a typical silly sibling squabble, but it sets off a chain reaction, starting with music-loving Orellia insisting that aspiring fashion designer Amaryllis “got sequins inside her trombone” and ending with the sisters retreating to separate, custom-made castle towers, and the whole kingdom in a funk. The breach is finally healed when Violet sets off another chain reaction, this time involving an old drawing of the group that brings to mind “all the spectacular times the sisters had spent doing everything together.” This picture gets passed from sister to sister, triggering more fond memories and acting as a kind of peace treaty. Coh’s (Princesses on the Run) lively parade of spot drawings, expressionistic sketches, and elaborately rendered spreads (including one that requires readers to hold the book vertically) make the pages fly by. There’s plenty to love for princess fans, especially since the girls have such a broad range of looks and interests. Ages 4–8. (May)
