The Little Princess, star of Tony Ross’s much loved series, is growing up and she’s just as much of a character as she ever was. She’s playing happily in the garden with her teddy bear Gilbert when she sees her friend Ollie approaching. Uh-oh, he can’t know she still plays with teddies so poor Gilbert is plonked in the nearest rose bush. Gilbert goes on to have a whole series of adventures before fate returns him to his owner, who has long since admitted even to Ollie that she needs her teddy back. This is the Little Princess in unusually benign mode and a lovely story about friendship, tolerance and owning up to mistakes. With illustrations in full colour throughout by Tony Ross it’s a good to look at as it is to read. ~ Andrea Reece
