Katie's very excited - her birthday is coming, and she'll be having a fancy dress party! What Katie would like more than anything, is to dress up as a princess, but Grandma can't seem to get her costume quite right! Perhaps a trip to the art gallery will provide some inspiration... Join Katie on her eighth adventure inside five famous paintings as she gets to be a real princess for a day!
