ROYAL: Little Miss Princess gets the red carpet treatment in the latest book Little Miss Princess and the Very Special Party

HANG out the Union Jack bunting, roll out the red carpet and sound the trumpets for the arrival of Little Miss Princess and her canine friend at a very British street party.

The newest character in the Mr Men and Little Miss series created by Cleckheaton author, the late Roger Hargreaves, and his son, Adam, will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in the latest book, Little Miss Princess and the Very Special Party.

Having made her debut in time for the Royal Wedding last year, Little Miss Princess shows she is a true Royal at heart – wearing a golden crown, travelling by carriage, sitting in a throne – she even has her very own corgi!

Little Miss Princess and the Very Special Party is a right royal giggle and is packed full of all the favourite Mr Men and Little Miss characters.

With Little Miss Princess as the guest of honour, Little Miss Helpful realises she must organise a very special party. But she isn’t as good at organising things as her name would suggest and it isn’t long before things start to go wrong – especially once Little Miss Naughty gets involved!

See Mr Tickle, the very first character created by Roger, use his extraordinarily long arms to put up bunting and find out who ends up sitting next to who according to Little Miss Naughty’s mischievous seating plan!

Adam, who began writing and illustrating the books after the death of his father, said: “It’s not the first time a dog has appeared in the Mr Men and Little Miss books but it is definitely the first appearance of a corgi!

“I am thrilled that the Mr Men and Little Misses will be marking the Jubilee in this brand new story and had great fun writing and illustrating it. The Mr Men love a bit of a bash and what better way to celebrate the Jubilee than with a fun street party!”

Little Miss Princess and the Very Special Party is in the shops now, priced £2.99.
