Little Princess: I Want My Dad

Publisher: Andersen Press

Little Princess loves her dad, the King, but when she compares him to a lot of the other dads around the castle – the Cook, who bakes his son elaborate, bird-topped cakes, and the General, who teachers his son to ride a pony – he falls a little short.

Fortunately, the Maid is there to help Little Princess learn lots of new skills, though they turn out to be trickier than they look. Yet when Little Princess feels like she's useless at everything, Dad is the person who makes her feel happy again.

The Little Princess is a perennial favourite, and this new story is a perfect one for Father's Day - or for sharing at any other time of the year.
