WE LOVE BOOKs
I have always had a love for picture books and can often be found browsing the shelves at my local independent book shop ,Pickled Pepper Books, for the perfect gift for Amelia Boo birthdays and of course my lovely daughters (book critics). So here are some of our favourite books we have found along the way.
PRINCESS DAISY AND
THE DRAGON AND
THE NINCOMPOOP KNIGHTS
Author and illustrator: Steven Lenton
For a while now I have been looking for a princess book for my pink loving daughter, with no luck. So how happy we were to find PRINCESS DAISY AND THE DRAGON AND THE NINCOMPOOP KNIGHTS.
I LOVE that the cover is PINK, and I LOVE that Princess Daisy is an unconventional princess. Steven Lenton has found the perfect balance in Princess Daisy, a pluckie Princess who is strong, courageous, smart, caring, and feminine. This book has everything that a modern day fairytale needs!
When a truly terrifying sound wakes the inhabitants of a fairytale kingdom, it takes clever Princess Daisy to realise that the culprit of this dreadful din is a dragon, but the three knights who answer her father's call for a hero to capture the creature prove to be nothing but NINCOMPOOPS!
But what's this? Riding a cow and armed with a book rather than a sword, a fourth mystery knight dares to enter the dragon's den. But who can it be...? Plucky Princess Daisy of course! A fabulously funny picture book that demonstrates that anyone can be brave
Im off to do a pary today and the book I have chosen for the little girl is
