A brand-new story in the best-selling Princess Poppy series with gorgeous coloured pages!
Poppy is very excited because she is hosting her first ever sleepover. Honey, Sweetpea, Mimosa and Abigail are all coming to stay and there are lots of treats in store, including beauty treatments, dance routines, midnight feasts and a nature walk in Wildspice Woods the next morning.
Much to the girls excitement, heavy snow falls during the night and when they wake up, everything is covered by a deep layer of sparkling snow. But they soon realize that the snowstorm isn't just fun and games. Things start to really get serious when Aunt Marigold's General Store runs out of food supplies, the log man can't get through because all the roads are blocked and Honey injures herself. Some of the villagers are even without electricity and phone lines.
Will the Villagers manage to stay warm and fed and will the community spirit of the Honeypot Hill residents shine through and help everyone pull together until the storm is over? And will Poppy save the day? Find out in this brilliant new Princess Poppy adventure.
Poor Poppy is feeling very down in the dumps - so much so she doesn't even believe she is a true princess any more. She is envious of her best friend because Honey is being taken on loads of fabulous outings by her parents, Dad is working really hard, Grandpa always seems to be busy with his vegetable garden and Mum is tired all the time because of her big baby bump! To make things even worse, Poppy is convinced that everyone likes Honey more than they like her and that they think she is prettier, including Mum and Cousin Saffron.
Poppy decides that the only thing for it is to start acting more like her best friend and to try to look more like her too. Poppy is sure that once she has turned herself into a copy of Honey, everyone will like her so much more.
Find out what happens when Poppy tries to become just like Honey. Will it make her happy or will she realize that everyone is different and that every little girl is a true princess in her own way?
