Princess No Knots by Deborah Dillon Illustrated by Matt Richards #Review


I am delighted to feature Princess No Knots on the blog tpday. This picture book should appeal to children aged 4 - 10 years.

 Princess No Knots LOVES her long golden hair as much as she LOVES her bath time, but she does NOT love having it brushed. When her flowing locks end up in knots, the King tells her they will have to be cut and takes away her crown. Enter a world of determination, sprinkled with a small dose of magic, to find out if the strong-willed Princess finds a way to get back her crown, keep her name and save the hair she so loves. A must read rhyming picture book for any parent who struggles with the dreaded 'hair wash' night! Available on

This is an easily relatable story and many a child will recognise Princess No Knots' complaints about having her hair brushed. The colourfully illustrated picture book is great fun The text is imaginatively formatted with some words highlighted which will make it easier for reading aloud. I particularly liked how the word 'disappeared' did just that as the text got smaller and smaller. Children will enjoy the little bit of magic in the story. Adults will enjoy the rhyming couplets and the character of Princess No Knots herself.

Cat and Mouse say: Keep brushing that hair!


About the Author


Deborah Dillon's love of books, poems and story telling stems from her Granddad Jim who always used to make up stories at bedtime when she was young. Every story would take her to crazy worlds of adventure and friendship, each story sprinkled with a tiny bit of determination.

Since having children of her own Deborah has continued this family tradition but rather than keeping all the stories in her head, she decided to write them down. As her children were growing up she was inspired to write about whatever obstacles or challenges they, or their friends, faced then overcame.

Deborah is a firm believer that something magical happens when you read a book together.
