This is a shimmering story from the Kingdom of Glitterland. Princess Sparkle loves all manner of sparkly, twinkly things, so she is shocked when she finds that the world outside the royal palace is often not very beautiful at all - something must be done! This delightful boardbook has indented foil details on every page, bringing to life all the dazzling gemstones, shiny shoes, scintillating chandeliers, beguiling butterflies and even flashy fish. Told with simple language that youngsters can follow easily, whether they are read to or try by themselves. When the King and Queen of Glitterland had a baby girl, the first thing she reached for was her mother's second-best crown. So the King decided to call her Princess Sparkle. The name suits her very well, for she adores jewels and sequins and anything that gleams, and every day she wears the sparkliest dress you could imagine. If there is one thing that Princess Sparkle loves as much as her jewels (of which she has lots), it is parties! You can go with her as she admires all the radiant clothes, and the whole palace twinkles with flickering candles - all of which is highlighted with special holographic foil. However, when Princess Sparkle leaves the castle for the very first time, it comes as a shock. Everything in the world outside is dull and ugly. Even the birds look bland, and the river that winds down the valley is brown and sluggish. Follow the princess as she livens up the waters with sapphires, decorates the trees with diamonds, adds pretty pearls to petals, and uses sequins to make the birds bright and beautiful. Young readers will certainly take a shine to Princess Sparkle's good deeds.
