Synopsis

Princess Poppy: The Big Mix Up by Janey Louise Jones

Poppy is really excited because she and Mum are working at Cousin Saffron's sewing shop for the day. She is sure it is going to be the most brilliant day ever because the shop is so glamorous and she'll get to chat to customers all day. But things start to go wrong when Poppy gets a bit carried away with all the village gossip she hears.
