The Rescue Princesses: The Snow Jewel by Paula Harrison

The Rescue Princesses are sledging through the beautiful snow of Northenland when they meet Princess Freya. She would love to join them but her father, King Eric, thinks sledging is too dangerous for a proper princess. Freya longs to prove him wrong, and impress her new friends too! Her chance comes when a tiny, mischievous kitten runs away from the castle and gets stuck on a broken branch above an icy pond. Can Freya rescue Minky from his perilous perch? And what will her father say when he finds out she's determined to try - ?

About the Author

Paula Harrison

Paula Harrison began inventing stories and writing them down as a child. One of her best was about a magical land inhabited by talking bookworms. After taking an English degree, she became a primary school teacher and is now married with two children. She loves inspiring children's imaginations and believes that day-dreaming can be a really good use of your time (although she hasn't actually said that during a lesson). Over the years, she's shared many different authors' books with children, and now she can't wait to share her own.

Paula says: “The beginnings of the idea for The Rescue Princesses came when I watched my daughters playing. They were racing around the garden pretending to be Princesses who could go anywhere and do anything they liked. That set me thinking: in a world where anything is possible, Princesses won’t be sitting around on thrones. They’ll be out there, proving they’re better than the Princes!”

Paula Harrison is the author of Red Moon Rising (for older readers)and The Rescue Princesses (a younger series). She wanted to be a writer from a young age but spent many happy years being a primary school teacher first. She finds inspiration in lots of things from cloud shapes to snippets of conversation. She loves sandy beaches and eating popcorn. She lives with her husband and children in Buckinghamshire, which is nowhere near the sea. Whenever possible, she packs her family into the car and journeys far and wide to find a sandy beach where she can paddle in the waves.
