Princess Bun Bun
Read An Excerpt
 
Princess Bun Bun
Written By Richard Scrimger
Illustrated By Gillian Johnson
Winifred was going to visit Uncle Dave in his new castle. That's what he called it. "Is it a real castle?" Winifred asked her mother.

"It's a condominium," said Mommy. "It's called Castle Apartments."
"I wonder if there'll be a moat, and a spiky door," Winifred said to her brother, Eugene.
"I wonder if there'll be juice in the fridge," he said.
"I hope there's a guard, with a sword." "I hope there's a TV" said Eugene.

Castle Towers didn't have a moat or a spiky door. There was a guard, but he didn't have a sword. He had a phone. He phoned Uncle Dave, and then let them in.
