Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Meet six little Handbag Friends - Harry, Hopspot, Binky, Balloon-Bird, Semolina and Loud Millie - as they go on an adventure, rescue lots of baby handbags from the horrible Clasp (move over Cruella De Vil) and find a new home inside a Princess's pink handbag. With warm, utterly charming illustrations by Sue Heap and the inimitable voice of Sally Lloyd-Jones, the Handbag Friends are set to take the children's book world by storm...and you'll love the song. Show me the 4-8 year-old who could resist it! (And don't necessarily exclude the boys - you may be surprised.)
