Julia Eccleshare's comment:
The best-selling Little Princess always manages to get her own way largely because she knows exactly what she wants! This time, she wants to win! The Little Princess is used to winning everything in the Palace because she can change the rules. At school it’s different. She tries her very hardest to win the painting cup, the numbers cup, the poem cup and the science cup but, for each, there is someone better than her. Luckily, there is just one cup left and the Little Princess can win it fairly and squarely.

About The Author
Born in 1939 in Wandsworth, South London, Tony never though about a career in art, but says he fell into it after his dream of being a cowboy disintegrated when a letter he wrote to John Wayne was never replied to.
After Liverpool College of Art, Tony became an art director at an Advertising Agency but after a particularly bad day in the office he gave up his job to go into teaching at Manchester Polytechnic.
His first book was published in 1976. As well as his own books he has illustrated books for authors such as Roald Dahl, Paula Danziger and Michael Palin. His series of books written with Jeanne Willis featuring the extra terrestrial teacher, Dr Xargle, has established a huge following of fans.
