I just downloaded this last night after a friend let me know about it. It's such a lovely story! Well Done! I'll be teaching 2 if not 3 lessons using all of the material here! AMAZING resource!
I really like the Dad. As a stay at home Dad I think the king is my favourite character. Great story guys!
It's a good story but we thought that it would be better if the main character had down syndrome and the series was all about her... but we still enjoyed it.
WOW... Gavin, I didn't think you would end up writing Children's books. I remember you writing stories in School. You even played the piano in Mr.McCann's English Class. hahaha This is a lovely story. I just read it there with my daughter.... well actually we let Rachel do the reading but we're making funny socks tonight. Her whole class will get involve. Hope you are well.
Just downloaded this book for a class in 2 weeks time... it GAVE me EVERYTHING I need. I'm going to have an amazing class for World Down Syndrome Day. Thank you for this... all teachers of young kids should have this resource! HIGHLY recommend!
Great for fans of the "Princess in Black" series, this light-hearted and action-packed adventure has kids ages 4-8 engaged in thinking about how to save Jade's robot Monkey, Hou Hou, and the Special Olympics right along with Jade and Nora.
I love the book... I initially thought that you should state that Nora has Down Syndrome as it is too subtle in the story. I guess, I understand why you did that. I just think some people might miss it... lovely story though. I want to give 5 stars... if there was a 4.5 stars I'd go with that.
Just found this book. I'm a teacher in a special needs school and I'm amazed that I had never heard about it before! Will be recommending this book to EVERYONE that I know. I love the fact that Down Syndrome is NOT mentioned in the Story. Just like Jade is NOT just a Princess, Nora is NOT just labelled! Well Done guys... I've just ordered the Physical books too!
What a great story and cause! Well done
Just arrived... I got the free download but my girls LOVED it so much that we bought a set!
This is such a lovely project. We got the books last week and it was lovely to see a lead character with Down Syndrome who saves the day.
I bought this book for my daughter and it is amazing. Not only does it show her that she is more than capable of doing anything she puts her mind to, it also shows her that her little brother who has Down Syndrome, is just as capable. Beautifully inspiring and fully inclusive book, we love it.

Guys, We are so glad to be a charity partner with you. Seeing this story coming to life and watching the children read and hear about Nora is so uplifting! Thank you so so much for doing this inspirational project!
YES YES YES! This is Fantastic! Absolutely love EVERYTHING about this! Awesome female characters, funny sidekicks and SO inclusive! Take a bow Not Just a Princess!
What a wonderful little book... I love the way the characters interact. It is so good to see more diversity in characters. Well DONE not just a Princess!
Love the book.... love the charities! Well done
