5 stars
We loved this book. I had not read anything from the series before so was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Princess is brainy and bright and comes to the rescue through her fantastic inventions. The creative and brave princess is a great role model for little girls. We loved the illustrations and my daughter loves to look at the pages spotting new things.  It's the kind of book she will fondly remember when she is an adult I think. There is also a lovely message about kindness in the book.  Top marks from us! Will definitely be buying more in the series.

This is a lovely story. It's about a princess who loves making things but her parents are fed up and tells her to make some friends. She goes off in search for some and finds Santa's grotto. Santa is poorly so she helps the elves to prepare for Christmas. My girl loved it because of santa and all the elves. My boy loves it as he adores machines and though all her gadgets were wonderful!!

This book arrived just before Christmas and I had the pleasure of reading it to my 5 year old daughter and 6 year old niece. We all loved the story! It's not like any princess story we've read before so we enjoyed the unusual twist, with no Prince Charming in sight! :)

My daughter really enjoyed this book. Princess Eliza loves making toys and inventions at home, but the Queen really wants her to make friends instead. Eliza ends up helping the elves in Santa's workshop, as Santa is ill and she makes lots of new friends. It is a nice story, and Eliza gets to keep making things and made friends. It is a rhyming book, with rhyming couplets, which my daughter liked, and she enjoyed the colourful, detailed illustrations

This was a lovely seasonal book with bright and colourful illustrations with lots on each page to look out for. My son really enjoyed reading all of the signs on Eliza's inventions. It was nice to have a female inventor in the story too, as it showed that girls can be just as creative mechanically as boys can, so it helps to dispel stereotypes for my son. It also showed that being kind and helpful towards others is the best way to make new friends. The rhyming text throughout also helped to move the story along for younger listeners/readers, for whom the length could have been longer than your average picture book. We would definitely look out for more books by this author.

A lovely hard back seasonal book.

We loved this book. We haven't had any books from this author before.

The book is about a girl who likes to invent things. Her parents would like her to make some friends. She goes on search for some friends and finds so elves who need her help. She invents things to help the elves and they all become her friends.

A lovely illustrated book which my daughter loved to listen to every night leading up to Christmas.
