When we got home from our Canada vacation, we found a great surprise waiting in our mailbox from the fun folks at Big Idea (otherwise known as the minds behind VeggieTales)--a sneak preview copy of the newest VeggieTales movie The Princess & The Popstar!
As the cover states, the theme is a lesson in being yourself. In a play on the Prince & the Pauper, Princess Poppyseed, a farm girl, and Vanna Banana, a pop star, have a chance meeting where they discover that they look alike. Princess Poppyseed dreams of a life more glamorous than her family's farm while Vanna Banana dreams of a life less lonesome than her famous calling. The girls switch places with each other, only to discover that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. The life they already led is the life God wants them to lead and the one they were designed for.
F&B both really liked the episode, as did their sweet friend Abbey who got to preview it with them early. They were, as usual, giggling their way through the silly song in the middle; this time, it's "Astonishing Wigs", a bit of a fashion history.
The Big Idea people have also offered us a second copy of The Princess & The Pop Star to give away to one of our readers.
