With the publication of the fifth story featuring the demanding Little Princess, I Don't Want to Go To Hospital, the series has been given a vibrant new look. The Queen is going to have a baby. The Little Princess isn't quite sure what to think. A sister would be wonderful but brothers are smelly. Brothers are rough and they have all the wrong toys. The Little Princess most definitely WANTS A SISTER. But when the new baby boy arrives home the Little Princess decides not to put him in the dustbin as she had planned; after all this family already has one beautiful Little Princess, maybe a Little Prince won't be so bad.

Since then, Tony has worked as an art director at an advertising agency, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, a teacher and a film maker -- as well as illustrating over 250 books!From School Library Journal:
PreS–Little Princess is expecting a sibling. She wants a sister, but the whole kingdom cautions her that the baby might be a boy–you don't get to choose. Page after page she outlines why a sister would be better–brothers are rough, stinky, and don't have the right toys. But as usual, she does not get what she wants, and yet she is satisfied with the result–a Little Prince. In this installment, Little Princess is not quite as bratty as in others, showing that she has matured a bit. Children familiar with the series will recognize the crown-and-white-dress-clad Princess, done in Ross's signature watercolor and line. Fans will not be disappointed with this offering, and it is a nice addition to new-sibling collections.–Angela J.
