Princess, Princess by Penny Dale


Princess, Princess by Penny Dale

Loosely based on the tale of Sleeping Beauty, this is the magical story of a pretty princess who forgets to invite one frowning little fairy to her party. The fairy, in a fit of pique, casts a naughty, nasty spell. But she regrets her temper tantrum and, with a kiss, makes everything all right once again.


[Penny Dale's] illustrations are wonderful... full of activity, expression and humour, enticing children to look and look again. Practical Parenting
