The Queen's Hat

The Queen's Hat. Steve Antony. 2015. [August] Scholastic. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: The Queen was on her way to visit someone very special when the wind went…swish! The wind took the Queen's favorite hat right off her head.

Premise/plot: The Queen is on her way to visit the new royal baby when the wind sweeps her hat away. The Queen and the palace guards chase the hat all over London. In the process of the chase, little readers are introduced to famous London sites: Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, London underground, London Zoo, London Eye, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, and Kensington Palace.

My thoughts: I loved, loved, loved the premise of this one! It was so very cute and quite delightful. I could see adults enjoying this one very much! I know I did. There's just something joyous about it.

What fun! Looks like a great way for any one to take a virtual visit to the sites of London.
