Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The star of Bun Bun's Birthday embarks on an adventure with her baby brother in Princess Bun Bun by Richard Scrimger, illus. by Gillian Johnson. They accidentally climb aboard the elevator in "Uncle Dave's" new building, the "Castle Apartments."

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-The family from Bun Bun's Birthday (Tundra, 2001)-Winifred, Eugene, their baby sister, and their parents-is going to visit Uncle Dave in his new home in the Castle Apartments. Eugene wonders whether there will be juice and a TV. Winifred's vision is triggered by the word "castle," and, as they approach the building, she conjures up a moat or a guard with a sword. In the lobby, Bun Bun toddles off by herself into an open elevator, and her sister hurries in, too. She desperately pushes buttons, and as the elevator doors open and close on different floors, she imagines that she sees a monster, a witch, and a princess. Johnson's humorous watercolor illustrations show that Winifred is really seeing a dog on a leash, a cleaning woman with a broom, and a stylishly dressed young woman. The girls are rescued when their uncle appears and tells them that the only princesses in the building are Princess Winifred and Princess Bun Bun. The story and illustrations evoke warm family relationships and tell a simple adventure of everyday life. Because the text is lengthy, the book might be better appreciated one-on-one.

Format: Hardcover
When Winifred hears they are going to visit her uncle at Castle Apartments, she is sure it is a real castle with a moat and tower.

Winifred and Bun Bun get on the elevator before their mom, dad, and brother get there, the doors close and they are on their way up alone. At various floors, as the doors open, they see a "princess," a "witch," a "monster," and finally their uncle who lives there at Castle Apartment Building.
