Princess Poppy The Unicorn Foal by Janey Louise Jones and Samantha Chaffey (Children's, 7 years +, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

Girly read!
February 2015, Young Corgi, 128 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Content: occasional peril, humour, cuteness
Join Poppy on a camper van adventure that takes her to the enchanting campsite, Fairy Moon. Together with her new friend Jonny, Poppy has fun discovering all sorts of wonderful wildlife – and could she even have spotted a real unicorn?

Before long Poppy's imagination runs wild and leads her into danger . . .

Nayu's thoughts 
As well as finding a unicorn foal Poppy learns the hard way adults have a reason for setting limits on where she and her friend Jonny can play while camping. I like the lessons which Poppy learns in each book, and in keeping with this being a chapter book not a picture book it felt reasonable that the mishaps were more dangerous. I am intrigued why she ended up being rescued in a particlar way 'again' – I wonder which book it happened for the first time! As ever the super cute illustrations add another dimension to the thrilling read which will be treasure and reread many times over.
