A gifty, funny illustrated series for imaginative girls, written by Nette Hilton, the author of A Proper Little Lady.


Once upon a time there was a dear little girl called Peony.
That’s P.E.O.N.Y.
And it’s me. I live in a Castle with my Dragon whose name is Totts.
That’s T.O.T.T.S
And that makes me a Princess if you really want to know.

Princess Peony is not really a princess, but she does have a pet dragon, which means she's kind of like a princess. In her first adventure, she must keep an evil troll (her brother) from trying to steal her dragon (dog)--and avoid being eaten by a bear, which is really hard work.

Industry Reviews
This is a book to read multiple times. It is so engaging children will want to rush through it the first time but it is also a book to savour. The plotting, characterisation and humour are superb. It is a wonderful place for young readers to share and develop imagination and revel in pretend-play and role-play alongside Princess Peony. The First Adventures of Princess Peony is fun and exciting and has a most satisfying story arc. It is a triumph. -- Joy Lawn * Boomerang Books *
I am sure The First Adventures of Princess Peony will definitely not be her last. * Kids' Book Review *
This is a series that encourages imaginative play. Peony is an ordinary girl who sees herself as a princess. This isn't a game to her; it's real. And readers can imagine their own royal worlds, especially with the tips and quizzes on princess-y sorts of things in the back of each book. * Practical Parenting *
Highly recommended for pre-schoolers, early primary schoolers, emergent readers and those of us struggling to accept the little princess within. -- Dimity Powell * Boomerang Books *
