April 2017 Book of the Month | 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. Now that she’s not so little her family and the court will have to start calling her by her real name – the problem is it’s so awful that no-one dare tell her what it is.
