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. She’s playing happily in the garden with her teddy bear Gilbert when she sees her friend Ollie approaching. Uh-oh, he can’t know she still plays with teddies so poor Gilbert is plonked in the nearest rose bush. Gilbert goes on to have a whole series of adventures before fate returns him to his owner, who has long since admitted even to Ollie that she needs her teddy back. This is the Little Princess in unusually benign mode and a lovely story about friendship, tolerance and owning up to mistakes. With illustrations in full colour throughout by Tony Ross it’s a good to look at as it is to read. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Where's Gilbert? by Wendy Finney

These young fiction colour readers take Tony Ross' beloved Little Princess to a whole new audience. The text appears in short blocks around full-colour illustrations, and is divided into short chapters, making it perfect for new readers.

Rosie the Not-so-Little-Princess has always loved Gilbert, her royal teddy bear. But she feels she's a bit too old for him now and decides to stop playing with him. But then Gilbert goes missing and has a very strange adventure indeed. Will Rosie ever get her teddy back?
