Marianna, the most beautiful, ever so kindest princess, lives happily with her mum, dad and gerbil. Happy, that is, until the new baby comes along. His Royal Highness King Baby is so smelly.

  • New York Times bestselling author, Sally Lloyd Jones, introduces a hilarious new character that will have brothers and sisters the world over wriggling with laughter, and perhaps will even inspire them to write their own dramatic tales of sibling rivalry!
  • Award-winning illustrator, David Roberts' brilliantly-observed and unmistakably elegant art style brings this very funny story to life.
