There is a royal struggle to have fun with fairy tales and at the same time teach girls the true meaning of &ldquo;Happily Ever After!&rdquo; This is a story I can truly believe in and feel comfortable sharing with my children.&rdquo; &mdash;Noelle Williams, mother of three &ldquo;We&rsquo;ve had countless women all over the nation tell us they wish there had been a book like this when they were little.&rdquo; &mdash;Susan Johnston, Princess Bubble author Modern Princesses Redefine Fairy Tale Endings for Young Readers! ATLANTA, June 26, 2009&mdash;You know how the story goes&mdash;Prince Charming, &ldquo;Happily Ever After,&rdquo; The End, right? Is this the ONLY option today&rsquo;s moms want to share with their young daughters? Two successful girlfriends are offering parents an updated version of the traditional fairy tale. No longer a &ldquo;Damsel in Distress,&rdquo; this princess travels the world, helps others, and finds &ldquo;happily ever after&rdquo; even before she finds her Prince! With wisdom gleaned from their careers as independent, globe-trotting flight attendants, first-time authors Susan Johnston and Kimberly Webb have crafted a new generation of fairy tales that celebrates singleness and self worth. A contemporary fairy tale for all ages, Princess Bubble was written to reduce the overwhelming sense of failure, self-doubt, and despair that many youth face. Three most common disorders in girls: low self-esteem, depression, and eating disorders In 2003, breast implants tripled from 3,872 to 11,326 in girls under age 18 Girls ages 12 to 19 spent over $8 million on cosmetics in 2005 (Source: Report of the APA Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls,2007) &ldquo;I adore sharing the Princess Bubble message with my daughter because it teaches her that happiness comes from within,&rdquo; said Kim Daniels, mother of two. Princess Bubble stars a princess who is confused by the traditional fairy tale messages that say she must find her &ldquo;prince&rdquo; before she can live &ldquo;happily ever after.&rdquo; Princess Bubble dons her &ldquo;thinking crown&rdquo; to research traditional fairy tales, interviews married girlfriends, and even takes counsel from her mother, who advises her to sign up at FindYourPrince.comFindYourPrince.com. With a little help from her fairy godmother (this is still a fairy tale after all), Ms. Bubble discovers that &ldquo;living happily ever after&rdquo; is not about finding a prince. &ldquo;True happiness,&rdquo; the book reveals, &ldquo;is found by loving God, being kind to others, and being comfortable with who you are already!&rdquo; &ldquo;We are definitely not anti-Prince,&rdquo; said Webb. &ldquo;We just believe that young girls today are bombarded with so much inaccurate advice on how to build their self-esteem&mdash;messages that focus on the outside rather than what&rsquo;s within. We want to change that message.&rdquo; Johnston, recently married, said, &quot;Princess Bubble is a better version of us. She is educated, well traveled, wants to make a difference, owns her own castle and had also been a bridesmaid and is told in the story that she will wear the bridesmaid dress again. Recently, my life took an unexpected turn I NEVER expected for myself and I met a prince. This relationship has made me even more passionate about the message of Princess Bubble because we both feel so strongly about being happy first and then as secure happy people you are able to encourage each other to fulfill their dreams and be a better person. Not expect the other person to be the dream.&quot; ABOUT PRINCESS BUBBLE and BUBBLE GUM PRESS: The Princess Bubble message, cleverly articulated by former Delta flight attendants Susan Johnston and Kimberly Webb, seeks to find an alternate ending to &ldquo;happily ever after&rdquo; and change the notion that life begins and ends with finding your Prince Charming. Looking to bolster the poor self-esteem of female youth and the stigma that many single adult women carry, Johnston and Webb believe&ldquo;this is a book for women of all ages, a story they can believe in and share with their children.&rdquo; In upcoming adventures, Princess Bubble will travel to distant lands where the knowledge of every new culture will enrich her flourishing life. -30- </span></div> <div><span class="Apple-style-span"><br /> </span></div> </div> </span></div> </span></div> </div> </div> </div> </span></div>
