Cinnamon Stitch is a princess who longs to be wild and free. Her parents, the King and Queen, want her to be a 'proper' princess.
One day, a bedraggled Cinnamon is brought back to the castle in disgrace after swimming in the slimy lake and clambering up trees. But this time, instead of arguing, Cinnamon starts to sew, much to the delight of her stuffy parents.
Has she changed? Is she going to be a 'proper' princess and behave nicely and make beautiful dresses for herself? Or is she planning something very, very different, right under their noses?

Little Annika is a panicker. She panics when her coat zip gets stuck on the way to a party. She panics when she can't find her favourite toy at bedtime...
Mum, Dad and her brother try to show her how to stay calm. But then something happens that sends everyone else into a panic - can you guess what happens?
Don't Panic, Annika! (Piccadilly Press, 2011) is also out in Australia (Koala Books), The Netherlands as Geen Paniek, Anniek! (de Vries Brouwers) and soon to be out in Taiwan (dual language Chinese and English) and Slovenia.
