Isabella Buckarella is a picture book text in which a tomboy princess would rather dig for worms than wear her pretty clothes.


Isabella Buckarella was a princess. She lived in a beautiful, big palace with her father, the King.


The King wanted Isabella to wear a silly frilly dress, a silly frilly coat, and snappy strappy shoes. But Isabella liked to wear raggy baggy pants, a raggy taggy shirt, and flippy floppy shoes. And she liked to go looking for worms.


With illustrations from the celebrated New Zealand artist Jenny Cooper, Jill Eggleton delivers a fun, quirky story about responsibility and being true to yourself.
