Synopsis

Best Friends! by Wendy Finney

The Not-So-Little Princess Rosie is growing up! Being a princess, she is always having to entertain new friends and she never likes them. But when Ollie, with his strange old-fashioned way of speaking, turns up at the palace one day, Rosie realises she's never met anyone quite like him before. It's not long before they get up to mischief...

A multi award-winning TV series based on the books is currently airing on Milkshake daily and has sold to over 100 territories worldwide.
