Taking in sights such as Stonehenge, Snowdonia, Giants Causeway, Edinburgh Castle, Oxford and then arriving back in London, this chase includes the Queen's butler and an awful lot of policemen. A witty and stylish celebration of the United Kingdom and the Queen.Praise for The Queen's Hat: 'This is a wonderful romp of a read that's a great introduction to London, royalty and all that makes Britain great.' - Sun'... this picture book is hard to beat for its sweet simplicity and charming monochromatic drawings.' - The Times
