The Tin Princess (1994) is a young adult novel by the English author Philip Pullman, part of the Sally Lockhart series.

Plot introduction[edit]

Sixteen-year-old Becky is about to have her life changed. A dramatic explosion is only the start of her incredible adventure. As maid to the cockney Crown Princess (Adelaide of The Ruby in the Smoke, whose fortunes have greatly changed) of Razkavia, a tiny kingdom in Europe, she is plunged into a turmoil of murder and intrigue.

TV adaptation[edit]

This book was expected to be made into a TV Movie by the BBC to be aired in December 2009 on BBC1, but as of April 5, 2009, production on The Tiger in the Well (the previous book in the series) had not begun, and so the future of the two remaining adaptations remains unknown.
