Book Cover Image

Holly Ryan grew up in a little Cornish fishing village where she spent most of her childhood exploring rock pools. After spending many years working behind various computers in London and Bristol, she slowly became uninspired by the rat-race so moved back home. She’s now living by the sea with her partner and two crazy little boys and their blind cat, Maisey. Holly likes, amongst other things, pickled eggs, den building with her boys, pizza Fridays, and sucking her thumb. This is her first picture book.

Siân Roberts has a First Class Honours degree in Illustration from the Arts University Bournemouth. Check out her website to see the other picture books she has illustrated.


Book Review

I liked the way the princess was brave and rescued both the knight and her teddy

I really enjoyed this story because it has pirates and a fierce princess which I love.

I liked the way the princess was brave and rescued both the knight and her teddy.

I liked listening out for all the rhyming words, and the colourful pictures are beautiful with lots of detail and sometimes they made me laugh.

This is now definitely one of my favourite stories on my bookcase
