Princess Poppy: The Royal Parade by Janey Louise Jones

Princess Poppy is so excited. It's the annual dress-up parade and this year the theme is royalty. She can't wait to get her glad rags on. But there's a lot to do before the fun can begin and everyone must muck in - including Poppy. The trouble is she keeps getting distracted...

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

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
