Simon and Schuster have sent me several Princess Evie books to review in the past and I have to admit that as I've not really liked the look of them much before (too much pink for my liking) I've not sat down and read them properly with Little Miss C and not reviewed them on here. This week Confetti the Magic Wedding Pony
arrived and Little Miss C pounced on it as soon as she saw it. It seems she's got a bit of a pony obsession that I hadn't even realised – sorry!
In each of the books (eight in total now) Princess Evie goes off on an adventure with one of her magical ponies. In this book she is taken to a castle ready to be bridesmaid at a wedding and Confetti is given the job of pulling the bridal carriage. When a pet dragon(!) goes missing with the wedding rings Princess Evie and her backpack of useful things comes to the rescue.
Despite my views, LMC absolutely loved this book. The pop-up version of Confetti at the back of the book is a lovely touch and allowed her to act out her own stories with it once we'd finished reading the book. The fact that I was instantly able to pull out a couple more books in the series gave me mummy bonus points, but I do feel rather bad about my own prejudices against girly books like this.
