A very sprightly Queen is off to visit a special person when a gust of wind rudely picks up her hat and sends it high into the air. The Queen (and her entourage) dash from one well-known London location to the next trying desperately to recover the escaped head-wear.
The red white and blue (and black) colour-palette and crisp architectural drawings of London’s sites, make for a visually excellent story. With lots of swishing, swooshing and soaring, the language is delicious.
A truly excellent picture book.
