Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox giveaway
Imagine Ellen's surprise when Princess Mirror-Belle climbs out of the bathroom mirror! She comes from a world where bubble fish swim in the bath, goblins sleep in slippers, and brave knights fight fire-breathing dragons.
And while Ellen has chicken pox, Mirror-Belle has dragon pox – but she knows just the cure. The bath is soon overflowing with bubbles and goo… but will it get rid of their spots?
Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox is a new picture book by the dream team of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, visit their website for further information and things to do.

About the author
Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of some of the world's best-loved children's books. Her first picture book, A Squash and A Squeeze, was published over twenty years ago, and since then she has written over 160 books, including the modern classic The Gruffalo. Julia also writes fiction, poems, plays and songs - and her brilliant live shows are always in demand. She was the 2011-2013 UK Children's Laureate, has an MBE from the Queen and you can even find a painting of her in The National Portrait Gallery in London. Julia Donaldson divides her time between Scotland and West Sussex where she lives with her husband, Malcolm, who often joins her on stage for their sell-out singalong shows.
