Recent reviews

  • This is definitely a My Story book for girls, but does provide some very interesting information for a children’s book and gives an insight into the life of the Royal Family during the Second World War.

    Wartime Princess in one of my favourite books and I’ve read it many times although it can become slightly tiring when you know the outcome of all of the events, however, I highly recommend it.
