I Want A Sister!
A Little Princess story
Publisher: Andersen Press
This is one of a series of books about the loveable but demanding Little Princess, and is packed with fun and gentle learning.
The Little Princess is pleased to hear about the new baby - but only if it's a sister. The usual characters - the King, the Queen, the Maid, the Doctor, the Admiral, and the Prime Minister - try to prepare her for the other possibility, but have no success.
Of course the Little Princess comes round in the end, and manages to smile at the Little Prince. Tony Ross is a genius; his characters are wonderfully expressed, and the early learning he offers is always completely painless.
