Synopsis

Princesses are Not Perfect by Kate Lum & Sue Hellard

These aren't the kind of princesses who sit around doing nothing - they're very busy every day... gardening, baking and making things. But one day, one of the princesses wants a change from her job - she wants to bake. After all, she's good at everything. But soon the princesses learn that specialisation is itself a skill and, actually, being a jack of all trades isn't quite as good as being a master of one. A fresh and jaunty picture book featuring three high-spirited princesses and their trusty housekeeper, Mrs Blue.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
