A brilliantly fresh take with the traditional tale of the Princess and the Pea at its heart, this will entertain girls everywhere – and their fathers! Dad tries everything to disguise the peas he cooks but even the faintest hint of one makes his daughter sick. Is there a cure? The doctor is convinced that Lily Rose May must be a princess. Living in the palace will be the only cure. Lily is up for the change but, little does she know that the life of a princess is not as much fun as it looks. And, what will she do when she has to eat…. cabbage? The message may put them young readers off being a princess - and cure fussy eaters everywhere.

Synopsis

The Princess and the Peas by Sarah Warburton

Lily-Rose May will not eat her peas. Even when her father turns them into the most fabulous smoothies, shakes or cupcakes, Lily can always tell they are there and turns her little nose up at them. Luckily, the doctor knows exactly what to do. He diagnoses an incurable case of Princess-itus and sends Lily to live at the palace. Unfortunately for Lily-Rose May, the perfect food for a princess is . . . well . . . that would be telling!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

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.
