In so many ways Little Miss C is such a girly girl – a huge fan of princesses, pink and anything sparkly. It’s funny in a way as I’m not sure I can remember having that sort of phase myself, but it’s what really seems to make her happy right now. She was therefore delighted when the latest review book from Parragon turned up – Glitterbelle The Sparkliest Princess Ever!
Glitterbelle lives in a palace at the top of a hill with her Mum, The Queen, and her Dad, The King. She’s not exactly a fan of a typical fairy tale princess life though and Glitterbelle much prefers to whizz round on her scooter and climb trees with her friends than to kiss lots of frogs in the hope of finding a prince. The other thing about Glitterbelle is that she’s the great great great great granddaughter of the princess who got to marry a prince after a bad night’s sleep due to a pea under her mattress.
Glitterbelle The Sparkliest Princess Ever is a lovely introduction to Glitterbelle and her friends Dazzlina and Angel and we also see how Glitterbelle manages to overcome her hatred of peas.
Little Miss C loved meeting Glitterbelle and was incredibly excited to discover that she had already read about her great great great great grandmamma in another book (The Princess and the Pea). She also related to the scooter riding and tree climbing that the girls got up to.
In addition to the story book we were also sent Glitterbelle Doodle, Dazzle, Create! which is the perfect accompaniment for craft loving Glitterbelle fans. This book comes with a sparkly tin covered notebook which LMC and Master C are currently fighting over as they both love it so much. The book contains loads of activities and LMC has really been getting stuck into them. There are pictures to draw, invitations to write, smoothies to make, dresses to design and games to play and LMC absolutely loves it. It’s always good to see a story book encouraging children to craft or make things and this Doodle, Dazzle, Create book is therefore a perfect companion book.
