The Lovereading comment:
A touching and funny story about a 7 year-old girl's adventure having tea with the Queen. Told with Giles Andreae's trademark warmth and humour, but with an added poignancy when the Queen meets Christopher, Freya's brother, this is a perfect celebration of the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee in June 2012.
SynopsisMe, the Queen and Christopher by Giles Andreae, Tony Ross
What happens when a little girl gets an invitation to at Buckingham Palace with the Queen? Nothing ordinary, if the girl is Freya. We learn that the Queen likes to boogie, eats beans on toast (with the inevitable result) but is also compassionate and understanding.
