Hodder, part of the huge Hatchette group, have asked Babette to produce Princess Smartypants as a set of chapter books  for 6-8 year olds. This is very exciting news as Princess Smartypants is already a brand name from her best selling Picture books published by Puffin.

We are all very excited about this at Babette Cole International Children’s books as it takes our famous feisty princess into a new realm and is destined for the best seller list.
