Princess Poppy Snowflake
It's a beautiful snow-sparkling day and Poppy, Honey and Saffron are off to Wildspice Woods to collect twigs and berries to decorate the ball room at the Hedgerows Hotel for the Winter Ball the following night! When they enter the woods, everything looks and smells magical and the girls are entranced. But as they walk deeper and deeper into the trees it becomes darker and darker and they can hear a strange noise that sounds like a baby crying. Poppy, Honey and Saffron follow the whimpering as it gets louder and louder and louder, until eventually, as they walk into the most dense part of the wood, they find an injured baby deer curled up all on its own underneath a snowy fir tree. They can't just leave him there - what are they going to do? Join them on their midwinter adventure and find out what happens ...

About Janey Louise Jones
Janey Louise Jones 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. Veronica Vasylenko 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.
