April 2017 Book of the Month | The Little Princess, star of Tony Ross’s much loved series, is growing up and she’s just as much of a character as she ever was. Now that she’s not so little her family and the court will have to start calling her by her real name – the problem is it’s so awful that no-one dare tell her what it is. But this little girl knows just how to sort things out to her own satisfaction and works out a happy solution. By any name the Little Princess will fascinate readers as she stomps and shouts her way around her castle and Tony Ross continues to revel in her shockingly bad behaviour, his colour illustrations fizzing with her energy. ~ Andrea Reece
