Walker Books, 2016. ISBN 9781925381047 (paperback)
(Age 8+) Highly recommended. Princess Betony and the Rule of Wishing is another book in the series featuring Princess Betony as the main character. It is a cute little hardcover story and would make a lovely gift for girls - especially for those who like princesses. Princess Betony wants a friend but her teacher is more concerned with her acting like a princess. Luckily, Betony's mother understands and gives Betony time off from her princess studies, giving her the chance to meet Clover, the gardener's niece. They spend the holidays gardening and when the wizard uses magic to help the seeds grow, Clover decides she wants to be a witch. Clover becomes obsessed with passing the test and making the right wish. Will Betony lose her friend to magic or will Clover become the greatest witch ever? Princess Betony and the Rule of Wishing is a quick moving tale and is highly recommended to girls aged 8+. Collect the series and enjoy the adventures of Princess Betony.
