His Royal Tinyness

By Sally Lloyd-Jones
Illustrated by David Roberts

A new baby story that turns the sibling lament into a hilarious memoir. Meet the rightful heir to the throne: the big sister!

Once upon a time there was a happy family. Until one horrible no good day when a new ruler was born… 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. He’s so noisy. And all the talk in the Land is about him – non-stop. ALL THE TIME! Has there ever been such a time of wicked rule?! New York Times bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones’ hilarious narrative voice is brought exquisitely to life by David Roberts, illustrator of Ada Twist, Scientist, in this home-grown fairy tale about a little girl with a new baby brother.

  • The absolute-must-have gift for any brother or sister experiencing the trials, tribulations – and ultimate rewards – of a new family member!
