I Don't Want to Go to Bed!

By Tony Ross

A new sure-fire winner about the stroppy, opinionated - and yet endearing - Little Princess: the ninth in the series of which almost 2 million copies have been sold in the UK alone.

The incorrigible toddler is now asking the infamous question: 'Why do I have to go to bed when I'm not tired?', and she uses every stratagem she can think of to avoid her fate: monsters in the cupboard, hairy spiders, thirst, even outright escape! But when she finally does go to sleep, her bed is empty. Wherever has she gone now?
