Description

A thought-provoking story that encourages us all to sit up and take notice.

Nobody notices the queen on the corner. Nobody, that is . . . except one young girl. Through her eyes, the woman who dwells in the abandoned plot is a warrior queen, with many battles fought and won. When, one day, danger comes to the street and the queen on the corner sounds the alarm, the little girl must find a way to thank her. Can she bring the community together to turn the queen's corner into a home?

"This hopeful tale uses a youthful view of the world to imagine what our society could be like if all people and their experiences were valued and respected. Sweet and thought-provoking"--Kirkus Reviews

"Told from the viewpoint of a small child, it gently reminds us that everyone has a story - struggles and successes, ups and downs - and everyone needs a place to call home--Julia Green, children's author

A beautiful and thought provoking book for children - and adults - that shines a light on some of the issues surrounding homelessness. And it's inspired by real people. Like the author says: Look out for the Queens and Kings"--Shelter Homeless Charity
