Synopsis

I Want My Dinner by Tony Ross

The hilarious Little Princess returns with more tears and tantrums in this humorous picture book of good manners. 'I want...I want...I want.' The Little Princess needs to learn some manners but, several tantrums later, once she's mastered 'please' and 'thank you', she finds that not everyone else is so polite! She's certainly not going to give the Beastie back his dinner until he asks nicely.

His series of books written with Jeanne Willis featuring the extra terrestrial teacher, Dr Xargle, has established a huge following of fans.
