Review of Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Lydia Monks
We love Julia Donaldson’s books and were thrilled to receive a copy of her latest book Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox.
Ellen has chicken pox and is covered in spots. When she goes into the bathroom a voice starts speaking from the mirror. The voice has a face that looks identical to Ellen – it is even covered in spots. She says that she is Princess Mirror-Belle and that they both have dragon pox not chicken pox, not only that, but she is sure that she knows a cure. Soon, they’re wreaking havoc in the bathroom with lots of bubble bath. Will it be a cure and will Princess Mirror-Belle take any of the blame for all of the mess that they have made?
This is an enchanting story that we thoroughly enjoyed. It is beautifully illustrated and we absolutely loved the glittery detail on each page.
Thank you to Macmillan for sending us a copy to review.
