Book Synopsis



Inspired by Mariah Carey's childhood, The Christmas Princess is an unforgettable holiday story, told by the Queen of Christmas herself with Michaela Angela Davis and featuring beautiful illustrations by Fuuji Takashi.

The Queen of Christmas introduces . . . Little Mariah!

There was one time unlike any other,
when everyone pitched in and helped one another . . .

CHRISTMAS TIME!

Mariah Carey, lovingly and aptly known as the Queen of Christmas, has brought forth a unique, heartwarming, and modern fairy tale with The Christmas Princess, starring Little Mariah! Like her historic, globally adored song "All I Want for Christmas Is You," this story is an instant and inclusive family holiday classic. While firmly placed in the tradition of Christmas storytelling, The Christmas Princess is infused with her one-of-a-kind festive Mariah magic and musicality.

Little Mariah doesn't have much and doesn't want a lot, but there is just one thing she longs for: a peaceful and joyous holiday season. Feeling outcast and alone, Little Mariah sets off on a wintry, wondrous journey, ultimately discovering the healing power of her voice to spread the spirit of Christmas at home and all around the world.

This book is not only poorly written with questionable grammar and completely confused is writing styles. Worst of all it’s a sad and rather depressing story let alone a Christmas story? I would not recommend for children period but certainly not under the age of 10 but daughter found it sad and depressing not to mention how confused she was. Just skip it!

I really wanted to like this book because it’s from Mariah but it’s not a well written children’s book at all. Very odd, extremely wordy and doesn’t make a bit of sense. I had to skip over a few words and there were times I wasn’t sure the content was appropriate for my 5 year old. Super disappointed in this book!

Such a strange story. I like Mariah Carey and based off the cover I thought this would be a cute Christmas story but it was not at all. It has a slight mention to Christmas but I wouldn’t even call this a Christmas book or really a book that would be enjoyed by children. Would not recommend.

This book is beautifully illustrated but the story itself is just strange. It is supposed to be about self worth and a positive message but it just comes across as someone telling their bad childhood memories in a weird way. Absolutely not tied to Christmas itself at all. **Bully character language is too harsh and I had to skip over it for my 7 year old.

This book is terrible. So wordy. Terribly written. Language that should not be in a children’s book, especially a Christmas story. My child didn’t even want me to finish the story because no one has a clue what it’s about.

Honest review coming: I like Mariah Carey and the values/morals this book is teaching are great. That being said, the story itself is so incredibly wordy and boring to a 4 year old that it didn’t old anyones attention. The verses are meant to be rhythmic and there’s just too much extra fluff that it’s so confusing. This is being returned for a different Christmas book.

"The Christmas Princess" is a book that every child needs to read. Actually everyone needs to read this regardless of age, race or gender because it covers so many important topics in a brilliant way that is also perfect for Kids. This is a story that beautifully covers so many life lessons and beliefs that we all want to teach our children. This is truly a inspiration and educational read while still being fun and festive. The whole family will love this book and it's something to be passed down for generations. This is a gread read and I highly recommended to everyone with Kids.
