Professor Setsu Shigematsu found her efforts at limiting her daughter's exposure to princess culture ineffective. When she refused to buy princess dolls for her then-3-year-old, they only became more desirable. Rather than trying to enforce an impossible ban, she decided to write her own princess story.That one story has grown into a whole series about princesses who get out there and solve problems, rather than waiting for a guy to save them. I think we can all agree that Prince Charming and his white horse haven't done much for us lately. Time to give the Guardian Princess Alliance a chance?
