The Little Princess is jealous – all her friends' dads can do amazing things. The Cook bakes delicious cakes: the King burns buns. The Gardener takes his daughter on adventure-walks through the forest: the King gets lost on his way to bed. When the Maid volunteers to do these things with the Little Princess, it looks like her problems are over. But what if she has more in common with her dad than she realises?
• Publishing in good time for Fathers' Day, to celebrate that special bond.
• The King may not be able to do lots of impressive things, but his pride in Little Princess's achievements is worth all those exciting adventures put together.
• Encourages father-child bonding - the perfect bedtime story.
