A royally entertaining story by former children's laureate Anne Fine for Egmont's Blue Banana series.

Pip's class are sending big red helium balloons off to celebrate their school's 100th anniversary. They ask the people who find them to tell them how far they'd gone. One lands just down the road, one is found in the next town - but Pip's flies all the way to Buckingham Palace! And Pip gets an invitation to have tea with the Queen . . .

Blue bananas are illustrated books for NC Level 2 readers learning to tackle longer prose for the first time with the support of extensive illustrations and speech bubbles. They are carefully designed with education in mind, supporting children's understanding of vocabulary and punctuation. Blue Bananas explore the feelings and emotions of characters in a clear fashion.
