About the Author

Babette Cole was one of the world's best loved writers and illustrators of children's picture books. She created more than 150 picture books and her bestselling Doctor Dog has been adapted as a successful children's cartoon TV series. Famous for her wacky sense of humour, most of her work is comedy like The Smelly Book, The Hairy Book, The Slimy Book and The Silly Book. Babette Cole was born on Jersey in the British Channel Islands. She attended the Canterbury College of Art (now the University for the Creative Arts) and received a BA Honours first class with distinction in animation. She worked with Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate creating children's BBC TV programs such as Bagpuss. Her work has been widely televised on BBC's Jackanory, CBeebies and Channel 4.

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 *
