Princess Practice with Piper

P is for Polished in Prose
Our little half-pint pal, LC, shared her Princess award with us today!  How fun! 

1. Name an author you love.
I love Dr. Seuss (predictable?  Probably.  But the truth’s the truth…).  Really, though, anything with a good cadence to it makes me really happy.  My insides dance along side.
(apparently her father’s involvement in the military band altered her genes on some level and obliterated any skiff of an inheritance from her mother’s obvious lack of sense of rhythm)
2. Name an author who highlights your personality.
We like to read Jack Prelutsky’s (Something BIG Has Been Here) poems.  I like them because they sound pretty.  Mom says that some of them remind her of me—they start out, at first glance, one way, but turn out completely different than what you expected!  And you know what’s neat?  It makes it even more fun!
3. Name some books you love.
My favorite books are really my books.  My Nana made them for me for Christmas.  I love them!  They are the perfect companion while sitting in my car seat.  They are a quiet and fun thing to look at during church, but Mom says I’m not allowed to talk to them then.  And they are beeeeauuuutiful!
P1020946 This one is my color book.  All the pages crinkle (Nana told me that she thought she was going to be arrested at the dollar store because she was feeling all the bags trying to find just the right amount of crunchiness).
P1020947 Each page has a different color and a different pattern that were quilted together by Nana, of course.  I think that Grandpa was getting nervous about all the fabric scraps strewn about their house…
P1020948 Ooooh, how this book mesmerizes me!
P1020949  Nana gave me this book, too.  Mommy says that it’s a cautionary tale of why little girls shouldn’t eat bugs.  With summer coming, she says I can use all the threats forewarnings prayers teachable moments I can get.
4. Something that always excites you...
My obvious first choice would be my dinner buckets, but Mommy says we’re not allowed to talk about those here. 
The most exciting part of my day, outside of my breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, is when someone, anyone, laughs at me.  It’s the funniest thing!  I’m still trying to figure out how to do it myself, so I end up making monkey faces instead.   
5. Something you hate...
I love my doggies.  But you know what?  Sometimes they come up to me and give me a big, wet kiss.  Right on my face.  Or in my hair (do you know how long it takes me to get my hair pretty in the morning???).  There are only so many hair disasters a girl can put up with in one day, and occasionally I’m just not in the mood.  Sometimes they lick my hair just right and Mom says I look like Mr. Spacely from the Jetsons. 
Okay, fellow princesses—it’s your turn—Will you share you literary likes with us?  Piper wanted to pass the tiara on to:
