In honor of #ThrowbackWednesday I’m digging through some of my elementary school creations. From my Kindergarden days, here’s the cleverly-titled hit The Princess Who Got Lost (with modern commentary):
Fate or nominative determinism?
The trees must have interfered with her cell reception, making her unable to use Google Maps. Or since this is from 2001, I guess she was probably using MapQuest on her pager or whatever.
Our heroes emerge. And no, none of them are Prince Charming.
Another lesson: don’t be ashamed to ask for directions. Also, princesses apparently change clothes really fast. And hair color.
I was not afraid to go all abstract expressionism with the illustrations.
I’m not sure if I’m feeling the queer subtext here, or if it’s a celebration of female friendship, not subordinated to romantic ideals, but my princesses were totally passing the Bechdel test way before Disney thought it was cool (sorry Frozen). Also, fluffy animals.
