The princess who had almost everything is still bored.  Her parents have given her everything they can think of including a castle full of toys and much more.  She has mountains of desserts and is spoiled beyond belief.  Finally, in desperation, her parents ask her what she wants.  She thinks briefly and decides she wants a prince to entertain her.  In all the land, not one prince seems to interest her. Time after time she yells, IM BORED! Finally the last prince arrives with a large cardboard box.

The only thing in the box was paper, sheets and sheets of paper. She was gathering herself to yell when the prince seized a large sheet of paper and folded it. He folded it again and again. Alicia was fascinated.

I like the pictures in the book and believe it has a cute storyline. The Princess Who Had Almost Everything will hold a little kids attention because of the pictures and the easy reading.  Its a good book for an early chapter book reader due to the simple language and easy-to-read print.  I loved the facial expressions of each of the characters and enjoyed reading this picture book to my younger siblings.  I thought that the story was well rounded and had a clear beginning, middle and end. 

The Princess Who Had Almost Everything is a four-star picture book.
