The Princess without a Crown

About the book

Princess Lottie is a princess – a real princess. She might not be your average princess but she knows her own mind and stays true to herself.

With wonderfully detailed illustrations and a lovely rhyming story, this fabulous book shows that being yourself is the thing to do, especially if you are a princess who doesn’t need a crown (or a prince)!

Written by Claire Walsh.

Illustrated by Jayne Farrer.

Storytelling and author visits

A teacher since 1992, specialising in Early Years and Key Stage One, I could not begin to count how many books I have read to my class over the years.

So, imagine my delight at my first book being published! I would like to share that delight with you.

I provide face to face visits to schools on the Fylde Coast and virtual visits elsewhere.

There is no charge for visits, however I would ask that you send the provided letter home to pupils, offering the option to purchase a signed copy of the book.
