This is the perfect gift this Christmas for that little girl from 3 to 7 who dreams of becoming a princess. It’s also the perfect book for mum to sit down with their princess after Christmas at a time when kids often say there’s nothing to do.

There’s so much to do inside the book, from a recipe to make Christmas tree cookies, how to make Christmas stockings to decorating some pretty cards. There’s even a silky handbag for your princess to carry to that special party over the festive period.
