But even a princess can have

stomping about all night.

TOO many presents . . . . . . and Princess Ruby learns that maybe gifts are NOT the most important thing after all. A comic cautionary tale for pampered princesses everywhere!

But when Sophie reads her favourite book of fairy tales, she suddenly has a bright idea and figures out EXACTLY

art Caryl H

Cowgirl

The pedestrian crossing started beeping. “Come on, girls,” I said. I gave one of the waiting drivers a nod, like it was

G. R. Gemin every day I crossed the High Street with five cows.

If Gemma ever stops to think about it, she knows hiding a load of cows from Cowgirl’s farm on a housing estate is a bit mad. After all, Cowgirl’s a weirdo and the estate is no place to bring up a cow. But it’s exciting, and she loves it, and it’s making things better. The only question is, how long can it last?

An uplifting, gently funny story of a Welsh community coming together and happy endings in unexpected places – Michael Morpurgo meets Jacqueline Wilson.
