Poppy is really excited because she and Mum are working at Cousin Saffron's sewing shop for the day while Saffron minds Poppy's baby brother and sister, Angel and Archie. She is absolutely sure it is going to be the most brilliant day ever because the shop is so fabulously glamorous and she'll get to chat to customers all day. But things start to go wrong when Poppy gets a bit carried away with all the village gossip she hears! Find out how Poppy becomes the biggest gossip in the village and whether or not her friends will ever forgive her for spreading rumours? Join Poppy as she learns that you shouldn't believe everything you hear, and you certainly shouldn't repeat it - especially if it is just village gossip.show more

About Janey Louise Jones

Janey was born in Edinburgh and grew up by the seaside just outside the city. Janey published the first two Princess Poppy books herself (with her own illustrations) and the books were so popular that Random House Children's Books soon bought the series and re-packaged the books. The series is now going from strength to strength, including picture books, novels for young readers, activity books and sumptuous gift books. Janey read English at Edinburgh University specializing in the Victorian novel. Following this she became a teacher - a career that she absolutely adored - and then, with her husband, set up The Jelly Club, which has become an extremely successful chain of children's activity centres in Scotland. She still very much enjoys visiting schools and talking to children to find out what they like doing and what makes them laugh. Janey and her husband live in Edinburgh with their three sons.show more
