Great for age range 5-7
For all those girls whoâd rather be tackling the next big adventure than being a princess then Portia is a character theyâll love. Sheâs off on the high seas to get away from life as a princess and together with her parrot Squawk and her ladies in waiting as crew she finds her vocation in life – rescuing other princesses from life as a princess. Adventure at its best.


Pirate Princess Portia by Judy Brown

Portia is a reluctant princess, horrified by her father's idea of marrying her off to a boring prince. So rather than endure years of dull matrimony, she sells the family jewels, buys a ship and escapes to sea -- with her ladies-in-waiting as crew.

When Portia hear news that her favourite cousin is also being set up for an unsuitable marriage, she and her crewswing into action and set off to the rescue. Soon Portia's services are in high demand from indignant princesses worldwide. Pleas for escape are delivered by the ship's parrot, Squawk, to a P.O. Box - Portia Only. But while Portia's busy rescuing princesses, her own jilted groom has sent someone in pursuit of HER! Count Nasty's ship is on the horizon, and he's not giving up easily...
