The Lovereading4Kids comment

Best-selling Julia Donaldson has created a new story for the popular Princess Mirror-Belle in this gorgeously glittery book. Ellen is covered in spots. She has chicken pox and is very itchy! She’s just about to scratch the nasty tickly spot on the end of her nose when Princess Mirror-Belle pops up. Princess Mirror-Belle has a magic cure for dragon pox. But what will Mum have to say about it!


Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox by Julia Donaldson

Ellen gets a big shock when her double appears out of the bathroom mirror, but Mirror-Belle is a double with a difference! She is a princess, and a mischievous one at that. She is sure that Ellen's chicken pox is actually dragon pox - and she is full of ideas about how to make the spots disappear.

The seventh title from the chart-busting team of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks is another winner. There's glitter on every page too!



'[A] tip-top adventurous ballad which will hold its readers captive.' - Guardian
