Princess Penelope's naughty little kitten is all tangled up in wool and has scampered off! Little girls will love helping her track the trail of pretty pink glitter left by her kitten as it runs though the palace and grounds, encountering lots of other animals friends along the way. "In Royaltown Palace one long, lazy day, Princess Penelope wanted to play. But Daddy was reading and Mummy was knitting, so she thought she'd make friends with the mischievous kitten. Penelope giggled - the kitten looked funny with pink wool all tangled around his white tummy."
