The Queen with the Wobbly Bottom by Phillip Gwynne


The Queen with the Wobbly Bottom by Phillip Gwynne

A sweet and hilariously funny picture book about learning to love yourself for who you are. It's not so easy to keep a stiff upper lip when one has a wobbly bottom! The Queen is beautiful, clever and popular, but all she can think of is her bottom. It wobbles like raspberry jelly, and the queen doesn't like it. When she offers a reward for a solution to the royal wobble, hopeful candidates turn up in droves with cures of every kind. But none of them work, and the queen eventually discovers that real beauty comes from within. The Queen with the Wobbly Bottom is a brilliantly conceived royal story from Phillip Gwynne and Bruce Whatley with genuine humour and an important moral at its heart.
