The Queen of France by Tim Wadham


The Queen of France by Tim Wadham

When Rose wakes up one morning feeling royal, she dons her necklaces, bracelets and crown. Soon the Queen of France emerges to survey her domain, disapproving of Rose's mother's thorny gardening choices and asking Rose's father where the Royal Physician may be found. The odd thing is, when Rose returns to look for the Queen of France, she's nowhere to be seen. And when the imperious queen comes back, she's curious to know what Rose's parents would think if she traded places with their little girl? With charming illustrations by Kady MacDonald Denton and a humorous text by Tim Wadham, this is a sweet homage to the easy affection between parents and an imaginative child.


An irresistible celebration of make-believe ... its observation, its touching ending, and Katy MacDonald Denton's characterful pastel-coloured draughtsmanship make this book an entertainment fit for kings. -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times
