Anika Noni Rose Writes Upcoming Princess Tiana Children’s Book

Exciting news for Princess and the Frog fans! Tiana’s voice actress, Anika Noni Rose, has penned a new picture book titled “Tiana’s Perfect Plan” for Disney Hyperion.

The cover art for “Tiana’s Perfect Plan,” illustrated by Olivia Duchess, features a scene that mirrors concept art for the upcoming ride Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Tiana, dressed in a new, adventurous outfit, sits in a small boat surrounded by the soft glow of fireflies, hinting at the bayou setting of both the book and the ride.


The picture book’s description also bears similarities to the ride’s story:

“A charming debut picture book from acclaimed actress, singer, and Disney Legend Anika Noni Rose, which shows Princess Tiana on a never-before-seen New Orleans adventure!

After traveling all winter, Tiana and Naveen are back in New Orleans in time for Mardi Gras. Tiana wants everything to be just right, putting the finishing touches on their party favors and parade float.

But then she gets an unexpected letter from Naveen’s parents, the king and queen of Maldonia. They’ve decided to join the celebration!

Determined to make it the best Mardi Gras ever, Tiana sets out on a new adventure with some old friends to find the perfect ingredients for a special addition. But soon she finds that perfect might not be the goal… and she may already have all she needs.”


And here is the description for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure:

“In the bayou, Princess Tiana is getting ready to throw a big party, but there’s been a bit of a mix-up between Prince Naveen and Louis. Uh oh — the princess suddenly finds herself in need of a band. We previously shared that all-new Disney characters were being created for this attraction and that’s where the critters come in. Even with the richest roux for your gumbo and the most delicious beignets, a true Mardi Gras celebration isn’t complete without music. We’ll follow Tiana and Louis into the bayou in a last-minute search for this essential missing ingredient for her party — musical critters!”

Similarities abound! In both the book “Tiana’s Perfect Plan” and the Tiana’s Bayou Adventure ride, Tiana embarks on a Mardi Gras quest to find a special ingredient. While the ride focuses on her search for musical critters, the book hints at her additional goal of impressing Naveen’s parents, adding a fun twist to the story.

The book is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released on October 22, 2024. Will you be placing an order?
