Description of this Book

Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and beloved illustrator Lydia Monks team up for a wonderfully imaginative and delightfully funny 64-page story about an unlikely friendship between two very different royals. Bold, bouncy Queen Munch loves nothing more than eating delicious cakes and enormous breakfasts, whereas Queen Nibble is pale, quiet, and likes making necklaces out of raindrops. So when Queen Munch decides to invite Queen Nibble for a visit and win her friendship, the mission seems doomed to fail. But there is more to each Queen than meets the eye and soon a friendship begins to blossom. Author of The Lost Happy Endings, The Princess Blankets and The Tear Thief Carol Ann Duffy brings these loveable characters to life with her uniquely evocative voice - paired brilliantly with the bold and colourful artwork of the illustrator of Julia Donaldson's What the Ladybird Heard, Lydia Monks. With full colour artwork and a longer story than most picture books, Queen Munch and Queen Nibble is the perfect gift for new readers, and a journey into a captivating and fantastical world that will delight young readers over and over again.
