The Long White Scarf by Maxine Trotter


The Long White Scarf by Maxine Trotter

Long before she becomes queen, Princess Victoria rides out in an open coach with her mother. Around her neck the child proudly wears her new silk scarf - long, white and embroidered with her initial. But the scarf will not belong to the as a mischievous wind plucks the scarf from her neck and lifts it into the air. The young princess will grow up, become queen and rule her country for many years before she will see the scarf again. And what of the scarf? How long will it float on the breeze and find a succession of owners before time - and chance - bring it back to its rightful owner at last?


An elegant, original, entertaining, and highly recommended for young readers, The Long White Scarf would make a popular addition to any school, family, or community library picturebook collection.
