The Birthday Ball by Lois Lowry

Princess Patricia Priscilla is bored with her life and, worse, her 16th birthday ball is coming up and she has to make a choice between three horrible nobles from neighboring domains. To break up the monotony of her days, she decides to pretend to be a poor peasant named Pat and go to the village school where she meets an adorable “norphan” and an intriguing schoolmaster. I read The Birthday Ball out loud to my boys. It was fun, filled with entertaining wordplay. It was super predictable, as many children’s books are for adults, but that still didn’t spoil the sweet ending. I enjoyed it and so did the boys. Excellent family read aloud!
