Princess heads to Moldylocks's house for movie night. Moldy's cousin Jack comes, too. He brings pink jelly beans for a snack. But Princess doesn't like pink, so she throws the jelly beans out the window. Soon, the beans sprout into a huge pillar of snacks! The three friends climb up the snackstalk and find themselves in Snackland! It is filled with pizza-roll hills, nacho-cheese rivers, and there's even a golden egg roll in a snack-filled castle! The problem is there's also a GIANT in that castle! Will Princess and her friends ever escape Snackland?

* "Jones takes 'The Three Bears' for a dizzy spin in this laff-riot series opener.... Being cast against both genre type and publishers' convention, Princess likes 'dirty sneakers, giant bugs, mud puddles, monster trucks, and cheesy pizza' far more than fairies, princesses or anything pink, and she also (for a wonder) has dark skin in the cartoon illustrations.... Fledgling readers will agree with Princess' bemused comment: 'This Land of Fake-Believe is crazy-cakes!'" -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The story...will have kids guffawing with the silly puns and cheering for the ingenious Princess Pink in this subverted version of the more traditional tale." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
