A right royal picture book treat from Claire Freedman, author of
ALIEN'S LOVE UNDERPANTS.
Queenie has one BIG ambition. When she grows up she is going to be
Queen. Because growing up can take "forever" she is already practising
doing queenly things. One day, Queenie summons her Dear Loyal
Subjects to a royal tea party. Queenie reluctantly invites her
shy little sister, Ella, but during the party forgets to include
her in the games. Suddenly, Queenie doesn't feel so queenly, she
feels horrible and mean.
In this laugh-out-loud, feel-good tale, Queenie discovers that if
there is one thing more important than being a good queen, it is
being a great sister!
