From Steve Antony, the author and illustrator of PLEASE, MR. PANDA and BETTY GOES BANANAS!

A sudden gust of wind sets off a marvelous adventure for the Queen, lots of Queen's men, and one very special hat. Just where will that hat land? Following a hysterical, epic hat chase, the Queen is reunited with her hat -- and the royal baby!

Young children will love the search-and-find fun of the story, the hysterical mayhem that breaks loose, and Steve Antony's winning art style. THE QUEEN'S HAT shows some of London's most famous sites, and back matter explains their significance.

Praise For The Queen's Hat

THE QUEEN'S HAT was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal in the UK!

Praise for PLEASE, MR. PANDA by Steve Antony

"Smart design decisions by Antony ... distinguish his visual storytelling. The warm gray backdrop and parade of black and white animals (a skunk, an ostrich, an orca) make the candy-colored doughnuts look all the more tantalizing. Novel perspectives ... provide freshness, too." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Praise for BETTY GOES BANANAS by Steve Antony

"Childlike illustrations in pencil and graphite sticks ... draw children into Betty's life with humor. ... Teachers and parents of short-fused toddlers will read this over and over." --KIRKUS REVIEWS
