Prince Change-a-Lot was fed up with being treated like a baby, especially as his parents were making a bad job of running the kingdom. Even the good fairies were on strike because things were so bad they were having to work overtime. Prince Change-a-Lot thinks he'd change a few things.

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- In this British import, Prince Change-a-lot is tired of the way the kingdom has been run. When rubbing his royal potty produces a genie, the Prince is able to reverse roles with his parents, and he starts to set things right. Parliament becomes an amusement park, destructive dragons amuse themselves with video games, and the horrible blubber worms explode after being fed too much candy (this is accompanied with a needlessly grisly illustration). Much of the satire will go over children's heads, but there's enough zaniness here to be appealing. Cole's illustrations have spontaneous humor and do much to carry the story. Nevertheless, while some kids may find this quirky and fun, most will find it unremarkable. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elementary School, Pasadena, TX
