Review: The Queen’s Hat

July 24, 2015

The Queen's Hat

The Queen is out to visit “someone very special” when a big gust of wind sweeps her hat off of her head.  The wind is so strong it sweeps the Queen’s hat all through London – passing places like Trafalgar Square and the London Eye – and neither she nor her men can catch it.  When the wind finally settles down, her hat is near Kensington Palace and lands in the most delightful place!

The Queen’s Hat written and illustrated by Steve Antony is an adorable picture book for the youngest Anglophiles.  It takes readers on a quick tour of London and celebrates the newest member of the royal family.  The illustrations are muted in shades of blue, black, and red but fit the story perfectly.  Youngsters will delight in the creative drawings and text placement which dips and swirls.  This is a great way to introduce London and the royal family to little readers.
