The whole Kingdom is very excited - there's going to be a new royal baby! This is a charming story that captures the joy and excitement of a new baby (whether they're royal or not!). Set in a timeless kingdom, this is an irreverently funny and heart-warming story.
A Piece of Passion from the Commissioning Editor My name is Peter Marley and I am a commissioning editor for children’s picture books at Oxford University Press. It is my job to find new talent and to work with authors and illustrators to create books that children and parents will love. The Royal Baby is a picture book that captures the excitement leading up to the arrival of a new baby. It is a very happy time, and, naturally, there is often a lot of fun speculation about what the baby will be like: will it be a boy or girl, tall or short, dark or fair, sporty or musical. What I love about this story is that it captures that excitement in a really funny way and then offers children a lovely, reassuring message – which is that they will be loved and cherished no matter what they are like.
The Royal Baby by Tony Bradman
Everyone is thrilled when it's announced that their favourite princess is going to have a baby. Speculation starts immediately. What will the baby be like? Will it be a boy or a girl ...tall or short? Will it be hairy like the old king? Or sporty and fearless like the knights? The questions go on and on as the Princess grows larger. But soon the Prince and the Princess don't mind anymore. They know that they will love their baby whatever it is like ...
