Join Lucy and the colourful cast of rowdy, rude and funny ‘cut-out’ characters in this warm and funny adventure for young readers from the internationally bestselling author Pat Hutchins, illustrated by Jessica Meserve.

What does a Princess have in common with rabble of swashbuckling pirates? Or a Knight? Or even a fire-breathing Dragon? They’ve all been cut out from their stories!

And the Princess isn’t happy about it. Not one little bit.

Now it’s up to Lucy to help them resolve their squabbles and untangle the endings to their stories.

Written by the beloved Pat Hutchins, author of classics such as The Wind Blew, Rosie’s Walk and Where oh Where is Rosie’s Chick, and superbly illustrated by CILIP Carnegie Medal nominated illustrator, Jessica Meserve, this lively story with a colourful cast of characters is perfect for sharing and reading aloud.
