The Lovereading4Kids comment
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

What's My Name? by Wendy Finney
The King and Queen realise they need to call the Little Princess by her real name now that she's actually not so little any more. But there's trouble ...the Princess's real name is so awful that nobody can pluck up the courage to tell her what it is! The Princess is determined to find out her true name. But what will happen when she does...?
A multi award-winning TV series based on the books is currently airing on Milkshake daily and has sold to over 100 territories worldwide.
