Princess Poppy’s stories are hugely popular, mainly with 6+ year old girls. Here in the Big Mix Up Poppy is really excited about spending a day working in a sewing shop in the village that belongs to a family friend as she’ll meet all sorts of people. But when her tongue gets the better of her and she becomes a bit of a gossip, things get a bit out of hand until that is…. You’ll have to read it to know what happens. Rest assured it’s full of fun with characters you really warm to and some lively illustrations help to tell the story as well.
