You Can’t Eat a Princess

Princesses, aliens and chocolate! A yummy laugh-out-loud treat. Say hello to Princess Spaghetti: a little girl with a very tasty name. Even better, her father is called King Cupcake. How scrummy is that? But now King Cupcake is in trouble! He’s been captured by hungry aliens who want to gobble him up. Maybe they think he really is a cake. Oh dear! So Princess Spaghetti blasts off into space to show those naughty aliens who’s boss. How can she stop them eating people? Psst: that’s a funny secret. (But it might involve chocolate. Om nom.)
