Princess Florizella may live in a classic fairy-tale world, but she’s no ordinary princess…
This two-book collection is made up of:
# The Princess Rules
# The Princess Rules: It’s a Prince Thing
“Princess Florizella was friends with some of the princesses who had studied the Princess Rules, and behaved just as the Rules said they should. Florizella thought their hair was lovely: so golden and so very long. And their clothes were nice: so richly embroidered. And their shoes were delightful: so tiny and handmade in silk. But their days bored her to death…”
Instead, Princess Florizella rides her horse, Jellybean, all over the kingdom, having adventures of her own…
Once upon a time, there was a princess who broke all the rules, and dared to be different…
So when that same princess – Florizella – finds a baby boy delivered by stork to her parents’ palace, she is shocked to discover that he will one day be king and inherit her kingdom! For every prince is given a permit which allow them to do whatever they like in the same way that every princess is given a set of rules that they have to live by.
As soon as Princess Florizella’s brother is big enough to have adventures, she takes him all over the land, fighting pirates, wrestling with a sea serpent and rehoming a woolly mammoth.
Can Florizella prove that girls having rules and boys having permits isn’t right? And that princes and princesses, and girls and boys, should be anything that they want to be…
“These are enchanting, simply written stories that have lost none of their pertinence – and this timely new edition deserves to win Florizella another generation of admirers.” 5 star review in the Saturday Telegraph
“…perfect for newish readers who are gaining confidence and ready for a challenge” The Times
