Everyone knows that picture book Princesses live in great splendour, in magnificent palaces with the King and Queen of the land as their parents. And so everything in the world of Princess Shiloh should have been peachy. But she has a problem, a big problem, for, unlike all of her family, and the rest of their kingdom, she just cannot sing. When visiting Princes can all sing like stars, Shiloh sounds like… a goat. The rhyming text bounces along as Shiloh tries to come to terms with her lack of talent. Ancient remedies and no amount of practice make not one scrap of difference. But then… Eureka! She finds her talent. ‘I love to rap, it’s when I have most fun, I’ve had a talent, though I thought I had none.’ Jubilation fills not just the palace with her brothers and sisters, but her newly realised talent becomes hot news around the world, as admirers arrive by carriage, canoe, balloon, by car. Shiloh is encouraged to see that whilst it is true, she has no voice for singing, in fact she does have a real talent for rapping. A tale to encourage youngsters to seek their own talent, and to persevere when faced with disappointment. The illustrations empathise greatly with the young princess; from the world’s best vocal coach’s seeming indifference to the palace doctor checking Shiloh’s voice box, the book glows in colours throughout.
