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

Imagine Ellen's surprise when Princess Mirror-Belle climbs out of the bathroom mirror! She comes from a world where bubble fish swim in the bath, elves sleep in slippers, and brave knights fight fire-breathing dragons. And while Ellen has chicken pox, Mirror-Belle has dragon pox -- but she knows just the cure. The bath is soon overflowing with bubbles and goo ...but will it get rid of their spots?

Based on the original Princess Mirror-Belle stories for older readers, this is the seventh glittery adventure from Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, the award-winning creators of What the Ladybird Heardand The Singing Mermaid.


Praise for The Singing Mermaid:

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

'[...] a delightful rhyming adventure.' - Daily Mail
