Seven-year-old writer Morgan E. Taylor wanted to change the face of princesses, especially in fairy tales, which aren’t the most diverse stories being told. Instead of waiting around for someone else to do it, she went out and, with help from her co-author, Todd Taylor, who also happens to be her father, wrote Daddy’s Little Princess, filled with stories featuring real-life African queens and princesses.

“Every little girl should believe she’s a princess,” said Morgan.

She also wants everyone to know that princesses come in all colors. Morgan’s goal is to share stories that build other girls’ self-esteem.
