Nelle, Thank you for writing the book Princess Lil. I want to write books when I grow up. Chloe
My most favorite part in the book was when Becky found Princess Lil and she knew it was her pony and when Princess Lil heard Becky’s voice and knew it was Becky. Love, Lydia.
“I am so grateful for the privilege of previewing “Princess Lil,” and look forward to sharing it with family, friends and in my counseling practice.”
Author of “Salome’s Conversion”
“More fairy tale than a parable, “Princess Lil” incorporates functions of the fairy tale: absentation, interdiction, violation, reconnaissance, delivery, trickery etc. while it weaves in age-appropriate lessons for the courage necessary for modern schoolyard bullying, the happiness gleaned from service, and the importance and staying power of the Word of the Lord. The storyteller delivers a fast-moving tale without becoming didactic or using condescending language for a younger audience.”

Bullying, so what’s new? We often just accept the norm. But bullying is an ever present worry of children, adults and animals. With horses we often call it the “pecking order” every horse knows its place in line in a herd. In Nelle Cooper’s book Princess Lil, the need for friendship and acceptance becomes vital to her health.
Cooper writes eloquently about this need to feel accepted in all of us. As the horse’s previous owner, Becky, says to Princess Lil, “I have learned from you, friendship is important and love is a gift to be treasured.”
Princess Lil is a wonderful book for older children to read and adults to read to their children or grandchildren. This book is a great way to open the conversation about bullying and how your child can make another child feel accepted!
