What to expect

Poppy loves ballet and is sure she’ll be picked to play Coppelia in the Big Show. But when her best friend Honey gets the part, Poppy is so cross that she doesn’t even want to be friends anymore!

Will Poppy realize how important friendship is in time to be a true ballerina princess on the night of the show?

Critics Review

  • As sweet as candy.

    Birmingham Post
  • With soft pink pictures and a secret letter for the reader, these suit dainty little ladies down to the ground. The simple language and easy pace make them a good first read.

  • Lovely books full of little girl appeal!

    Daily Echo
  • A lovely series of picture books… based on reality rather than a fantasy kingdom which make [Poppy] much easier to relate to. The adorable illustrations, coupled with innocent stories, make these books ideal for reading aloud… sure to become real favourites.
