NEW PRINCESS POPPY This is the exciting launch of the new rebranded Princess Poppy series that has sold over 6 million copies across many territories, including China, Portugal, Spain and Turkey since it was first published in 2003. With over 45 titles, Princess Poppy was celebrated as World Book Day in 2008, with sales that outsold leading brands, such as Paddington Bear . Princess Poppy, evergreen and beloved character is NOW back stronger, bolder and more inspirational, with great eco messages and values, longer stories and gorgeous illustrations!


My review 

The best thing about modern Children’s tale are the messages attached them.

Princess Poppy and her very best friend Honey want to make some strawberry ice cream, but Grandpa tells them the crop isn’t very good this year due to having fewer bees in the garden.

The two girls go on a mission to discover why !. Why are there fewer bees, What has happened to them and What can they do about it..

This beautifully illustrated book is perfect for young children and will definitely help them understand the importance of bees, the difference between a Honeybee and a Bumblebee and of course what we can all do to help them survive and increase their numbers.

There is a brilliant fact page at the back of the book, which makes this educational, informative and very enjoyable.

Not just for small children but for all readers who love a good picture book.





About the Author

Janey was born in Edinburgh and grew up by the seaside just outside the city. Janey published the first two Princess Poppy books herself (with her own illustrations) and the books were so popular that Random House Children’s Books soon bought the series and re-packaged the books. The series is now going from strength to strength, including picture books, activity books and sumptuous gift books. Janey has also written novels for young readers and the Princess Poppy Cookbook all of which have been very successful.

Janey read English at Edinburgh University specializing in the Victorian novel. Following this she became a teacher – a career that she absolutely adored – and then, with her husband, set up The Jelly Club, which has become an extremely successful chain of children’s activity centers in Scotland. She still very much enjoys visiting schools and talking to children to find out what they like doing and what makes them laugh. Janey lives in Edinburgh with their three sons.
