However, she is always willing to help her friends, and agrees to host the engagement party of three would-be princesses. But the trouble starts when the princes fail to turn up to the party - they've gone missing. Princess Smartypants is determined to uncover the plot and rescue the princes. With the help of Eric, her friendly giant handyman, she sets off on a wacky adventure to track the princes' last moves. Can Princess Smartypants solve the case of the missing princes and get them to the chuch on time before her next case waits? Hold on to your tiaras; there's a rescue mission to solve and a riotous wedding to plan!

Reviews

For children beginning to read independently, this is an exciting adventure and the fact that they may already know the main character from picture books may encourage them to choose this. -- Kathy Slater * Reading Zone - Teacher Review * It is packed full of humour and wit and was a real joy to read. -- Lauren Maidman * Reading Zone - Teacher Review * A new generation of readers will appreciate her feisty and unconventional heroine, who popularised the 'twisted' fairytale so widely read and appreciated today * School Librarian * Featuring plenty of hilarious black and white illustrations, this will appeal to fans of the Princess' picture books who are ready for more complex plot * Book Trust * A girl-power must-read! * The School Run * Always a pleasure to dive into the world of Babette Cole's Princess Smartypants * The Herald (Glasgow) * if you loved these when younger you'll also enjoy this great next step to longer fiction. * The Independent online * Lovely line drawings embellish the pages and combine with the short chapters to make the book a great way to encourage readers who love her picture books to move on to full-length fiction * Parents in Touch *
