About The Author

KEM was born and raised in South Texas and currently resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with a supportive and encouraging spouse and a beautiful little girl Katlyn. KEM’s inspiration for writing The Little Princess of Cherry Tree Kingdom was Katlyn’s continuous running around the house wearing a dress and tiara and pretending to be a princess. It was those special moments that moved KEM to make Katlyn a true little princess by writing her a fairy tale. If only for a short time, Katlyn would be a little princess

Accuracy of Book Profile

Yes, the book profile accurately describes the main conflict within the story and the hero's journey of three princesses trying to save a kingdom from a Dark Lord with magic.

Draw of Story

The fairy tale has a modern spin in that it involves environmental protection and the talking animals add nostalgia for fans of Disney-style fairy tales.

Possible Drawbacks

Sometimes the characters are too self-aware for a children's story. There are certain subjects such as slavery that perhaps are too dark for the earlier age range projected in the profile. By making the dialogue and subjects more attune to child development at that stage, the story will be more fairy tale-like and fitting tone-wise.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES HEAVILY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that a normal girl is thrust into a world with talking animals and has to use her newfound magical powers as a princess within the kingdom to save the environment from a Dark Lord.

Fanbase Potential

This could have a large fanbase of young girls and their parents as many young girls enjoy magic and princesses growing up and their parents will support the strong female role models aspect.

Awards Potential

This is unlikely to have awards potential as it is a children's story. Children's media is usually relegated to Children's award shows such as Nickelodeon Kid's Choice, so if it did get nominated it would be only within the realm of that unless this was turned into an animated feature or show. If this were an animated medium that focused more heavily on the nobility of saving the environment spin over the good vs. evil magic conflict, it could compete in the animation categories for normal awards circuits.

Envisioned Budget

What’s New About the Story

The story is original in that the main character has to adapt to having magical powers and saving a kingdom with sidekicks who are animals. She does not have a lot of her adventures with the sister princesses. To make it more original, more emphasis on why the environment is important to save rather than just saving it because the Dark Lord is evil would send a more unique message about conservation as a theme within a children's story.

Lead Characters

What makes Katlyn stand out is her fearlessness and self-confidence as a ten year old girl who suddenly finds herself in a magical realm full of responsibilities. She never lets fear get in her way and is very laid back on things like chipmunk poop on her face.

Uniqueness of Story

There are many side character animals which are creative, but making them have clear purposes for so many to exist could help the characters feel more grounded and traceable. The idea of young girls fighting for the environment is unique so focusing more on that rather than the idea of spells and magic to defeat the Dark Lord because he is evil would make the story have a more diverse theme.

Analyst Recommendation

WORK IN PROGRESS

Justification

While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.

Tips for Improvement

The tone could be adjusted to be slightly more kid friendly. As the audience is suggested to be as young as seven, making sure that the good characters emulate good behavior will help the tone be more appropriate. For example, when one of the non-evil characters talks under their breath and said "Is he dumb?" that is not something that an audience would like their child to mimic or quote from the story. Moments like these can come off as tonally jarring. By modeling a more child appropriate tone, the fairy tale will be more accessible to a larger age group that is more likely interested in ten year old princesses than teenagers would be.
