The Queen’s Hat

The Queen's HatThe Queen is on her way to visit the new royal baby, when the wind takes her favorite blue-and-red hat right off her head. Followed by her argyle sweater-clad Welsh Corgi, the Queen’s uniformed men, and a palace butler, she chases through Trafalgar Square, the London Zoo, the Underground, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, and Big Ben to Kensington Palace, where she is reunited with her hat and the baby princess. Charming red, black, and blue cartoon illustrations are humorous and detailed. The blue line architecture drawings of the landmarks are fascinating. Back matter gives information about all the famous London Sites. A sequel, The Queen’s Handbag (2015), follows the Queen all around the United Kingdom as she races after a swan that stole her purse. mjw
