Reviews

Praise for Princess Poppy: The Fancy Dress Party:

'Full of little girl appeal!' - Parents News

'A lovely series of picture books ...based on reality rather than a fantasy kingdom which make her much easier to relate to. The adorable illustrations, coupled with innocent stories, makes these books ideal for reading aloud...sure to become real favourites.' - South Wales Argus

'With soft pink pictures and a secret letter for the reader, these suit dainty little ladies down to the ground. The simple language and easy pace make them a good first read.' - Junior

'Millions of children have grown up with the accident-prone bear from darkest Peru...but now the latest story by a mother-of-three from Portobello has beaten the new Paddington Bear book to the top of the children's bestseller chart' - Edinburgh Evening News
