Description

When Grandpa gets ill Poppy can't think about anything else because she is so worried about him. She is missing him such a lot that she can't even concentrate on practicing for her gym club competition which is most unlike her as she is usually desperate to do the best that she can. When Poppy visits him in hospital she hardly recognizes Grandpa because he's looking so pale and thin, but when she sees his familiar stripey pyjamas and starts chatting away to him about what she's been up to, she knows it's him after all. Every time she visits, Poppy is sure that Grandpa is looking a little bit better and convinced that her wish for him to be home by the weekend will come true. Find out how Poppy helps Grandpa to get well again - and whether she will be a gym princess after all - in this delightful story, with a story CD read by Tamsin Greig.show more

Review quote

"With soft pink pictures and a secret letter for the reader, these suit dainty little ladies down to the ground. The simple language and easy pace make them a good first read" Junior "A lovely series of picture books ... Based on reality rather than a fantasy kingdom which make her much easier to relate to. The adorable illustrations, coupled with innocent stories, makes these books ideal for reading aloud ... Sure to become real favourites" South Wales Argus "Full of little girl appeal!"

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. Veronica gained a BA in Graphic Design at Bradford and Liverpool Polytechnic which led her into the world of greetings card design and then book illustration. Veronica says that her favourite thing about illustrating picture books is inventing characters and bringing them to life through her illustrations. Veronica lives and works in the small market town of Otley in West Yorkshire, and in her spare time she enjoys long-distance cycling in the Yorkshire Dales with her partner.show more
