This Woman Means Business… For Children


There’s something so empowering about a woman who recognizes a problem and makes a change. And that’s exactly what Ylleya Fields did, but she turned that change into an empire now known as Princess Cupcake Jones.

While looking for books to read to her eldest daughter (when she was 2), Ylleya was struck by the limited number of titles featuring black lead characters. Blending both of her daughter’s images and personalities together, Princess Cupcake Jones was created.

Ylleya Fields delivers a valuable message in every book. With the same gentle rhyming cadence throughout all the books, as well as vibrant illustrations, the captivating stories help children and their parents learn about sharing feelings, taking risks, and being supportive for new adventures. With the world “love” hidden in each illustration, this book can benefit all children. Princess Cupcake Jones has now turned into an empire complete with the book series, toys, school supplies, and clothing/merch.

I’m reaching out to see if you’re working on any stories that Ylleya or Princess Cupcake Jones would be a fit for. I’d be more than happy to send over additional information or high res photos upon request.
