You Can't Scare a Princess

King Cupcake. Captain Waffle. Princess Spaghetti. This tale of pirates and brave royals is totally good enough to eat! When a crew of nasty pirates sail up the Royal Moat and capture King Cupcake, who’s scared? Definitely NOT Princess Spaghetti. Who cares if Captain Waffle is the meanest, baddest pirate in the whole world? He’s no match for this plucky princess… A super-silly picture book full of lusciously bright colour pictures, naughty pirates and cheeky royal rescues. Sea monsters, treasure and hot air balloon rides: fun for everyone!

  • A swashbuckling caper full of pirates and princesses
  • Follow-up to the bestselling You Can’t Eat a Princess
  • Fun-filled artwork by top illustrator Sarah McIntyre
  • “A bright and bouncy adventure” – Daily Mail
