Olivia Grace is completely average. Or so she thinks . . . until Her Royal Highness, Princess Mia Thermopolis turns up at her school one day and whisks Olivia away to New York City! In a limo, no less! Where you can eat all the cookies you want and the ceiling lights up pink and purple - like a disco!

But discovering that your father is actually the Prince of Genovia is quite a shock. Especially since it means you're a descendent of the Kingdom of Genovia, and a princess.

Olivia's got a lot to learn about her long-lost family - and everyone's got a lot to learn about her!

Olivia chronicles her transformation from ordinary girl to princess in her notebook, with illustrations from Meg Cabot, who studied Fine Arts as an undergraduate.


For all girls that have ever dreamed of being a princess, this book is perfect.

Olivia Grace lives with her aunt and step-uncle and two step-cousins. She thinks everything about her is average, until one day Princess

Mia of Genovia turns up in a limo to pick up her little sister from school. Olivia is totally surprised to find out she is really a princess!

What will her aunt and uncle say about this and all the kids at school? Olivia soon finds life is not as easy as it seems for a princess.

A thoroughly entertaining story from the talented Meg Cabot, who has also done the illustrations in the notebook.

It is aimed at Grade 4 - 6 girls, a younger audience than the original Princess Diaries series, but just as entertaining!
