These are great, fast-moving tales of action and adventure in which four intrepid young ladies pit their wits against all sorts of ne’er-do-wells to save animals in peril everywhere. They have lovely dresses and sparkly tiaras, which they often swap for ninja gear, and magic rings that help them communicate with each other and keep their adventures top secret. Especially when their mums think they’re busy practising how to curtsey or make regal table arrangements.
A message from Paula Harrison's Editor at Nosy Crow:
As the mother of a six-year-old girl who recoils, hissing, from anything pink and who would be hard pushed to tell you what a hairbrush is, let alone if she owns one, I am not really in the market for books about sugar and spice and all of that. So when I read a manuscript about four princesses who know ninja moves and use them to rescue cool animals like lions and tigers, I could see the target readership very clearly indeed. Out of the window, in fact, doing cartwheels in the garden surrounded by a vast collection of stuffed cheetahs.
The Rescue Princesses: The Wishing Pearl by Paula Harrison
Princess Clarabel is the gentlest of the rescue Princesses. She worries that she isn't as brave as her friends. Sh she's secretly pleased when she's sent to gather sea shells for the Royal Regatta. Now no one will see how bad she is at ninja moves...But Clarabel finds a wounded dolphin trapped in a fishing net. Soon the Rescue Princesses are in the middle of another daring adventure and Clarabel discovers just how brave she can be.
Kirsty Stansfield of Publisher Nosy Crow says: "This series has something for every girl: there are plenty of tiaras and lovely dresses, but lots of action and ninja moves, too. And they've even got magic jewels!"
