Little Princess: I Want Snow

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

The Little Princess gets a postcard from the Queen who is away at the South Pole, counting penguins. The Little Princess, who has never seen snow before, realises that she wants it RIGHT NOW, but there's only one problem: it's the middle of summer. Despite the best efforts of the Prime Minister building her a snowman out of stones, and the Admiral building a snowcastle out of sand, the Little Princess isn't happy. Yet, one morning, she wakes up to a blanket of white all over the land. It's great, but it's REALLY, REALLY COLD.

Fans of the Little Princess will love this wintry addition to the series, but it's accessible and charming to anyone who hasn't encountered the determined Little Princess before, too. Tony Ross' brilliant illustrations are as funny and full of character as ever.
