“Princess Athena” by Stella Kasdagli
The second book of the series “Princess Athena” is published by the Patakis publications with the signature of Stella Kasdagli. A courageous series that reminds us that a true princess does not rest in her dresses and frogs. The new series Princess Athena by Stella Kassagli, with the illustration of Tomek Giovanni, challenges the omnipotence of stereotypes and encourages the 7-year-old ladies to express themselves, to wonder, to be inventive and creative.
In this series, and this is different from the rest, the more important is not what you can get, but what you can offer. It’s not what you choose to wear, but what do you choose to do.
The author, Stella Kasdagli.
