Bursting with fun and adventure, Hannah Shaw is back with a brand new magical series. This is set in Twinkleland Kingdom, where everyone is 100% perfect … apart from our little Princess. For what Princess Pea most loves is getting muddy and having fun in the great outdoors. But life is tough for this little Princess. The Queen, her mother, posts the daily schedule for her daughter, from stretchy yoga, singing, pan pipe lessons and ballet, all before breakfast. After this follows an indoor riding lesson (on her wooden unicorn,) art and swimming lessons, then a healthy lunch before changing into her best frilly frock for the Unicorn Parade. Groans from Princess Pea! For today she is to select her very own unicorn, from the herd of hopeful unicorns she can spot from her window, already being groomed. So, instead of going to her first lesson, Princess P pulls on her wellies and untangles the rope ladder she keeps hidden under her bed, flings it over her balcony….and escapes. Later, before the Grand Parade, the Queen welcomes all the visitors, and announces that Princess P will select the first ever Royal Unicorn, after watching them perform an elegant dance. After a trail of brilliantly coloured unicorns, quite unexpectantly, along trots a rather podgy, pongy and proud… Pig! Gasps from the King and Queen. But Princess Pea is immediately entranced as she realizes the pig has a HORN, just like all the other 49 unicorns. There are disasters galore before, of course, Princess Pea selects Pig to be her special unicorn, renaming him Unipiggle. It is a book for independent readers, or to read aloud to an audience, where the humour bursts out of every page, and the illustrations match the text in an hilariously quirky and colourful style. A winning read as an antidote to pink fluffy princesses!
