Handbag Friends

An exciting adventure - in a handbag!

by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Sue Heap

Disguised as a glittery, pink handbag, here’s a 64-page storybook adventure in three episodes starring The Handbag Friends.

Meet six little Handbag Friends–Harry, Hop-Spot, 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’ pink handbag. And sing The Handbag Song (you won’t be able to stop!).
