REVIEW FOR Katie and the Spanish Princess

A big thank you goes out to HarperCollins for sending this wonderful book to me!!

TITLE: Katie and the Spanish Princess

AUTHOR: James Mayhew

GENRE: Children's Book

RATING: 4 Stars





As soon as I saw this book, I fell in love with it. It is absolutely beautiful - the illustrations are wonderful and the storyline is adorable. I sat down with my little niece and we read through the book as a bedtime story - twice.

Katie and the Spanish Princess is a sweet story about Katie is going to celebrate her birthday - but she needs a fancy dress! where better to be inspired than visiting an art gallery where Katie will get to explore and live in 5 paintings. Not only is the story extremely clever, it is also educational (although I did not mention that to my niece).

As I mentioned the illustrations are beautiful and it makes you want to slowly turn the pages and explore each illustration in great detail absolutely enchanting.

I loved, loved this book.

Avis, I am thinking the right age group would be around 4 or 5 - my niece is 4 and she loved it! Its definitely a girlie book though (which is totally fine with me).

Thanks, Tina. My niece is 6, so this might still work for her. She's also really interested in art!
