Synopsis

Princess Poppy: The Play by Janey Louise Jones

Poppy is putting on a play in her garden! But there's so much to do - she will need tickets and costumes and actors and a story. Her best friend Honey is taking part, and so are her cousins Daisy and Edward. Everyone in the village will be there for the performance, so Poppy wants to make sure everything is just perfect. But when Poppy starts ordering everyone around, the others name her Princess Bossy Boots, and won't help her any more. What should Poppy do to save the play? Join Poppy as she learns a valuable lesson, and listen along as well with a fab CD read by the perfectly princessy Tamzin Outwaite.
