Description

This title presents a brand-new story in the best-selling "Princess Poppy" series with gorgeous coloured pages! Poppy and Honey are going on holiday to France to stay with Honey's parents in an enormous castle called Chateau Lafayette. They can't wait. It is the first time Poppy has ever been on an aeroplane and it is also the first time she has ever stayed in a castle. It is all so exciting! But when they arrive everything is not quite as it seems - there are locked doors, their things are mysteriously moved, a swing in the grounds is swinging with no one on it, they find a map of secret passages and they're sure they've seen a ghost in the woods. Join Poppy and Honey on their spooky French adventure and find out who is haunting their holiday.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
