In the follow up to Steve Antony‘s highly acclaimed ‘The Queen’s Hat‘, ‘The Queen’s Handbag‘ is set to receive the royal seal of approval.
Incorporating a number of iconic British landmarks and archetypal images, this is a humorous tale about the swiping of our Monarch’s handbag and how she goes about single-handedly getting it back!
Set to a quintessentially Great British back drop, this tale of cat and mouse includes instantly recognisable scenery such as Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and the Angel of the North.
Antony cleverly uses a limited but powerful palette, peppered with stunning monochromatic illustrations and lots and lots of policemen!
Packed with visual humour and minimal text, this makes for a fun and engaging read for a young or emerging reader and introduces them to a wealth of well known landmarks.
A special mention is needed also for the sole but highly enigmatic corgi, the Queen’s loyal butler and the cheeky cameo from a certain Mr Panda. Published on the 1st October by Hodder Children’s books, we have high hopes for this to be another best seller for Steve Antony and we’ve enjoyed watching him take the picture book market by storm.
