    Hi Hannah, thanks for your message. You have literally just made my day! I'm so glad you enjoyed The Rescue Princesses and Robyn Silver. I'm very excited about the second Robyn Silver book coming out in July because I had great fun writing it. There are lots more monsters in it too! I hope you enjoy it. Best wishes, Paula x

    Dear Paula Harrison

    My name is Hannah Scott and I'm aged 9. I want you to know that I really love your books!! The rescue princesses were great and I'm now staring to share them with all my friends at school so that they can read them too. I've just finished reading Robyn Silver (read it in four days) and I'm so excited for the next one!! My mum has shown it to me online and has promised to buy it for me if I continue to work hard at school. I really do love your work, you've even inspired me to write my own story on Robyn Silver and the monster hunters. I'd love to be an author when I grow up.

    Keep up the good, I mean really good work

    Love Hannah x

    Hi Kate, thanks for your message. I'm so pleased you're a fan of The Rescue Princesses! There are 12 books in the series at the moment, but some new books will be coming out next year. The first one will have a very cute river otter on the cover! Do you have a favourite animal out of the ones that are rescued?
    Best wishes, Paula x

    Hi, my name is Kate, and I'm 8. I'm a No. 1 fan of your Rescue Princesses series. You know the books about Rosalind, Lottie, Isabella, and Amina? I really like those books. If it's OK with you, I would really enjoy more books about Clarabelle, Emily, Lulu, and Jaminta. They are my favorite princesses. Thanks for writing these books. Bye.

    Hi Kara, thanks for writing to me. I'm so glad you're enjoying the Rescue Princesses series. It's hard to say which is my favourite princess because I like them all, but I do particularly love Emily because she's the one that brings all the girls together in the first book The Secret Promise. I hope that helps! Good luck with your book report!

    Hello Mrs. Harrison. I am writing a book report about The Rescue Princesses Moonlight Mystery and I wanted to say that I love this series. Who is your favorite Princess that you created? I am nine years old and I go to school in East Aurora, New York. Best wishes to you and your family. - Kara Stewart

    Hi Lauren, I'm so pleased you love the Rescue Princesses! I think your idea sounds great! If all the villains from the books teamed up that would make a very big problem indeed!!! Do you have a favourite book or a favourite animal from the series? Happy reading and Happy Christmas!

    Hi Paula, my name is Lauren, and I love love LOVE the Rescue Princess series! I have a new idea for a Rescue Princess book: I'd like to see all the Rescue Princesses team up together and solve one big, huge problem, and I think the villains from each book could also team up to create that big, huge problem. I think this would be a good idea because Emily could work with Lottie because they are sisters, and Jaminta and Isabella would make partners, too. I really, really like your work, and I can't wait to see the next book. Your (hopefully) biggest fan, Lauren. :)

    Hi Emily,
    Thanks for your message on my website. I've emailed you a reply but here's a copy in case it's helpful for others.
    How about getting the boys to do some animal tracking? Maybe print off some footprints of various animals and see if they can match the animal to the prints. Also, if the party is based around a ball then musical statues or musical bumps are good for boys and girls. I've had some great times at events where I bought or cut out cardboard crowns and got children to decorate them. The boys make crowns while the girls do tiaras.
    I hope that helps and that your daughter has a great party!
    Best wishes
    Paula

    Hi Izzy, thanks for your lovely message! I'm glad you've enjoyed The Rescue Princesses stories so much. There may be more books one day. In the meantime, if you live in the USA my Secret Rescuers series is due out next spring published by Aladdin and it's all about magical animals in danger. You might like those books too! Happy reading! Paula x

    I have a quick fan question and I was hoping you could email me. My daughter is having a 'royal ball' party inspired by rescue princesses and I have no idea what the boys should do. What do rescue princess princes do for fun? What are there responsibilities? How do they dress? Thanks for your input, we would really appreciate any ideas!

    Hi Maisie!
    Thanks for writing to me! I'm so pleased you've enjoyed The Rescue Princesses and the Red Moon Rising books. I am writing new things but it's all top secret at the moment!! In the meantime you might like The Secret Rescuers series which starts with The Storm Dragon and then The Sky Unicorn. They aren't as long as Red Moon Rising but they're very magical!! You could always try one out from your library.
    Happy reading!
    Paula xxx
    PS I sometimes think I'd like to be a kestrel too but then I do love animals so maybe I'd be a greytail!

    Hello Ms Harrison,

    My name is Maisie and I am 5 1/2. I loved the Rescue Princesses so my Mummy has been reading the Red Moon series with me. I REALLY love these books! I think I'd like to be a kestrel fairy but would like to know more about them. I'm SO excited for the last book as it comes out just before my birthday. I hope you do another series like this one, maybe with more about the other tribes? Keep up the good work!

    Hi Francesca! Thanks for writing to me. I'm afraid the Rescue Princesses series stops at book 12, but I have a new series for younger readers and the first book is called The Storm Dragon. If you liked the Rescue Princesses, I think you'll love this new story too!

    Hey! My name is Francesca Burke and could you try to write a new Rescue Princesses book sometime soon? Our little secret, but I wrote the Rescue Princesses, and they responded!!! Write me back soon!!!!!!!!

    Hello JA!
    If you are in the UK then it's best to post it to Nosy Crow, but if you're in the States it will reach me via Scholastic. Both addresses are on my Contact page. I'm looking forward to hearing from her! It sometimes takes me a few weeks to reply (if I'm trying to finish a book!) but I always write back to everyone. Remember to write down the return address including which country you are in. Paula xxx

    Ms. Harrison,
    My daughter is a huge fan of your Rescue Princesses and is very disappointed that there are only 12 stories. Are you planning on continuing the series? She has new concepts and first chapter beginnings for the A to Z Mysteries, and I have a feeling that she might try the same for Rescue Princesses. If you need ideas, or want a little first grade writing partner, let us know. :).

    Warmly,
