“Alison Murray’s Princess Penelope and the Runaway Kitten shows a naughty pet dashing through palace and garden while fast unravelling a ball of wool with which he has become entangled. Told in half rhyme and coolly illustrated, each page has a raised glitter trail representing the wool’s progress, ideal for small fingers to trace for themselves.”
