Prince Regal and the Forgotten Friends is full of wonderful toy characters that children or adults will be able to relate to. Among them are Prince Regal, the leader and inspiration to many of the others, Merrybelle, always smiling and trying to look on the bright side and Ted who soldiers on, despite his difficulties. Then there’s Roger. Suffice to say that most adults have met a ‘Roger’ at some time in their lives. The toys are in a predicament and despite Prince Regal’s best efforts, Roger is determined to make his job a lot more difficult.
This is a lovely story with delightful rhymes and illustrations at the end of each chapter that summarise the previous chapter or give hints about what may happen next. Children will be captivated and will absolutely love it!
Highly recommended.

Love this little book

Format: Kindle Edition

Of course, as the illustrator, I am prejudiced, but that is not the reason I like it. The author has woven several themes into the simple story of toys abandoned in the attic – loss, grieving, that time changes, that people forget the simple things that they loved when they were young, as they grow old, but that memory triggers can bring all the emotion back as strong as ever before. It covers continuity, the reminder that parents were children too, that life is constantly evolving etc etc – but best of all it is a simple story about friends who stick together, no matter what happens – even when they are cross with one another – and it has a warm and happy ending – so a nice little story and I am really looking forward to reading more children’s books from Jennie Orbell, whether I get to illustrate them or not

An appealing story for children with charming pictures, which provide many opportunities for verbal communication between the reader and a child under reading age.

This is an excellent children’s book for encouraging active and inquisitive little minds. The type of book that I’m sure teachers would love to read in class, as it evokes great conversation.
