Andersen will also publish the first-ever Festive Little Princess picture book in the new-look, written and illustrated by Tony Ross in his own unique style. , I Want Snow! is set for release in October 2017.
Libby Hamilton, Andersen Press’ Picture Book Editorial Director says, “This fantastic relaunch of Little Princess books will bring her stomping into the nurseries of a whole new generation. Tony’s genius is to have created a very real princess who says ‘I want!’ not ‘Please?’, but then learns from her mistakes. Long may her reign continue.”
Tony Ross himself commented, “It’s been great fun to publish The Little Princess with Andersen books over the years, and it’s amazing to see how much she’s grown from those first books. I hope this new publishing will reach new readers far and wide”
