I Want a Sister
Written and Illustrated by Tony Ross
Published by HarperCollins Children's Books
More Little Princess antics and a story that'll have more than a ring of familiarity about it for any of you who have toddlers and are expecting a new baby. The Little Princess has her own ideas about what should happen when Mummy and Daddy plan new offspring.
"I Want a Sister" might feel a bit predictable and formulaic but for fans of the Channel 5 "Little Princess" series, Ross's books never disappoint and there are some great running gags peppered through this story if you keep an eye open.
Charlotte's best bit: The cat with a glove on his head.
Daddy's favourite bit: The running gag with the cat "leaving home"
