The Princess and the Presents


This comic cautionary tale is the perfect picture book for pampered princesses everywhere.

Princess Ruby really is a horrid child. She is the most spoilt princess you could ever meet, and demands more and more birthday presents until the palace literally bulges at the seams. Was there ever a more selfish princess? But when the palace and gifts collapse upon the poor king, the tiny tyrant gets more than she bargained for and swiftly realises that she has overlooked the most precious thing of all . . . her father’s love. Luckily for Ruby, it’s never too late to make amends and show someone how much you care.

This funny rhyming story by award-winning author Caryl Hart is perfect for princesses (and princes) who don’t want to conform to type .

And there’s more! If you like Caryl Hart’s and Sarah Warburton’s witty and warm stories, there’s a whole series of books to discover about princesses who are definitely NOT princessy. Try The Princess and the Christmas Rescue, The Princess and the Giant, The Princess and the Presents and The Princess and the Pea.
