Book Shop News: Laughing out Loud
“Once upon a time, in a tower near you, lived a lonely princess, the Princess Sue….” – if that wasn’t enough to get a reader giggling, it won’t take much longer as you read The Worst Princess by Anna Kemp and illustrated by Sara Ogilvie.

This new Book Shop arrival, recommended to us by Rev. Anna, shows what happens when Prince Charming turns out to be quite different from what we’d hoped for. No ivory tower for this princess, who enlists the help of a dragon to find her true place in life. But there’s even more delight in the rhymes and in the drawings, which make us want to go write our own hilarious verses and draw our own funny pictures, they seem to be having such fun.

Of all the things we value, isn’t laughter somewhere near the top? And isn’t it often a quick route to unveiling messages of truth? It may be one of the best gifts we can give each other, and our children; one of the things we most remember about treasured friends. If this thought catches your fancy, why, then, just stop in the Book Shop where The Worst Princess awaits you, along with a fine array of other books for children and young people –and the young at heart; come and see!
