Today is my stop on the blog tour for Princess No Knots by Deborah Dillon, Illustrated by Matt Richards.
Here’s the blurb.
Princess No Knots LOVES her long golden hair as much as she LOVES her bath time, but she does NOT love having it brushed. When her flowing locks end up in knots, the King tells her they will have to be cut and takes away her crown. Enter a world of determination, sprinkled with a small dose of magic, to find out if the strong-willed Princess finds a way to get back her crown, keep her name and save the hair she so loves. A must read rhyming picture book for any parent who struggles with the dreaded ‘hair wash’ night! Available on amazon.co.uk.
Princess No Knots is a lovely little book about a Princess who absolutely hates to have her hair brushed.
She must quickly learn how to deal with her emotions to make sure she doesn’t loose her crown.. a Princess must look the part after all.
I read this with my two little girls and they loved it, they were engaged from first page to last.
The story itself is easy to follow and is paced nicely to enable younger children to read this themselves.
I enjoyed the message of the book and it helped me start a talk with my kids on how sometimes you have to do things you may not like but it gets it on the right level so they can fully understand why.
When asked the girls really wanted to tell everyone how lovely the illustrations are, although Georgia fully believes they aren’t anywhere near as good as her drawings ha. I apologise to the wonderful illustrator Matt Richards for that comment! ha
Georgia loved the book so much she has read it by herself a few more times independently which was lovely to see.
Overall Princess No Knots is a colourful and engaging read to support younger children as they learn in life.
Abi & Georgia rated this 5/5 stars!!
My thanks go to the author and Rachel @rararesources for having me on the tour and for providing a copy of the book for the girls to read. They are more than excited to let some of their friends see this one 😊
Why not follow the tour?
Author Bio –
Deborah Dillon’s love of books, poems and story telling stems from her Granddad Jim who always used to make up stories at bedtime when she was young. Every story would take her to crazy worlds of adventure and friendship, each story sprinkled with a tiny bit of determination.
Since having children of her own Deborah has continued this family tradition but rather than keeping all the stories in her head, she decided to write them down. As her children were growing up she was inspired to write about whatever obstacles or challenges they, or their friends, faced then overcame.
Deborah is a firm believer that something magical happens when you read a book together.
