David Roe -  Hong Kong May 15, 2021
The Farting Princess - is one of those books that children will read over and over again. Why? Because it will make them laugh about something that grown ups don't speak about but something that kids find hilarious - farting!!
The book is based on a true story - a farting Princess! Who would have thought.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves to see children laugh and loose themselves in that place which we should all aim to find!

The Farting Princess
Lovely book. Lovely book about Sandras experience dealing with cancer, but done with humour so children facing the same situation will be able to laugh about some of the absurdity’s of cancer treatment.

How The Princess Got Her Name
Charming and helpful book. This is a charming little book which starts the series about Sandra ( The Princess) and her journey through cancer . It is written in a light and amusing style that entertains and informs at the same time.
A very useful series of books for any child and their parents facing cancer.

The Princess and The Pee
Laughs with The Princess. Finding laughter during chemo is not easy, but this little book will help children facing the same situation as The Princess.

 Thumbs up! Wonderful illustration and fun read for little kids!

How The Princess Got Her Name 
Such a cool little book. It’s quite amazing how the story unfolds and has some really good inner meanings. The word that comes to mind is “Resilience” which is so important to teach children, through all the difficult times esp now with covid, resilience and positivity prevail.

The Princess and The Pee
A nice off set to the story we all know about the princess and the pea.
These books by Sandra are so intricate and heartwarming. It truly is inspiring and gives strength and hope to everyone small and big. Flipping through some of these pages and realising the little hurdles that “The Princess” had to overcome really gives you an appreciation for life. It takes courage to overcome our own issues we battle with on a daily basis. Something people of all ages can identify with not only kids.

The Farting Princess
The amusing story of the adventurous Princess continues in “The Farting Princess”. One of life’s taboo topics - farting - is brought to light as the Princess goes through cancer treatment. This book would be a valuable support to those affected by cancer or adversity anywhere. It shows liveliness, tenderness and laughter - and LOTS of it! As a short story it is perfectly magical in the way it is done. This is an enjoyable read and the Princess provides a true gift to people through her writing. I love this book oh so much! It makes dealing with something that is so hard to deal with in a simple and joyful way. Highly recommended read!

How The Princess Got Her Name
A marvellous story about an accomplished woman, Sandra, who goes on an adventure from her homeland in Canada to Hong Kong. Sandra meets her future Prince and is transformed into a Princess. This is an inspiring real life fairy tale that brings delight and wonderment to all youth at heart. The breathtaking illustrations capture the eye, bringing the story to life. This book leaves the reader looking forward to the next one in this beautiful series.... It’s a gem!

The Princess and the Pee
The beautifully crafted story line of The Princess continues with The Princess and the Pee. This book provides laughter in healing for those who are going through adversity, particularly children and youth. The wonderful ability to put a fantastic spin on cancer treatment contributes to the humour, charm and hope in the Princess’ personal story. This book will have a lasting impression for its readers as The Princess inspires people through her words. She brings colour to a difficult topic telling others they are not alone. It is such an important topic that I have not seen well addressed in this genre. I love this book series and would recommend it to children, youth and all those young at heart!

The Farting Princess
 My kids roared laughing!
Great kids story about the power of positivity and seeing the fun in a difficult situation. The toilet humour is a real winner with kids and captures their imagination! A brave, uplifting story based on real events, that is an entertaining book for all kids, but will especially help any child that is suffering from any illness or knows of any family member or friend that is working through an illness too. The book is so colourful and has amazing illustrations. Highly recommend this story. Plus 50% of proceeds go to cancer research, so well done to Sandra Roe, the author. Very noble cause.

How The Princess Got Her Name
Uplifting and truly unique children’s story.
Love this book. Beautifully illustrated, with whimsical and fairy tale like drawings. Really captures a child’s and adult’s imagination. Gorgeous story, based on a real life story of the author. Magical, kids love it

The Princess and The Pee
Great to see another story about the princess and her escapades!
Beautifully written and illustrated fairy tale like story of how to remain positive, when life throws you a curve ball and how to see the fun in the smallest of things and a real appreciation of living for today. Fun, entertaining and really positive story for all kids and especially any kids that are suffering from an illness or who may know of a close friend/relative who has an illness. This book is a comedic relief to how to cope and overcome sickness. An inspiration and it offers great lessons for young and old, in a very fun way.

Adventures of The Princess - Book Series
I found this series of Princess stories written by Sandra Roe to be ideal for children who in particular experience a period of time in hospital or home confinement. It is a lively true story with a beautiful princess and the farting that the princess blissfully giggles over. Children can relate to her and enjoy her adventures as each story in the series develop. I look forward to the next book in the series.
