From the award-winning creator of The Queen's Hat, The Queen's Handbag and The Queen's Present comes a fourth hilarious tale taking the reader on a whirlwind royal tour of space!

The Queen has been round the UK, and the world - twice! - and now she's off to Mercury, Venus, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and little Pluto in this romp through outer space!

Perfectly ties in with the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in 2019.

A witty and stylish celebration of the Queen, created by Steve Antony, winner of the Oscar's First Book Prize, nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.

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

MEDIA REVIEWS
A certain future classic, and without a doubt my absolute new favourite picture book. * LiteraryLoves *
This has become a wonderful series - so clever, yet so simple and very funny... A wonderful book, full of humour and such fun to read and to share * Parents In Touch *
The Queen's Present is a delightful addition to The Queen Collection, and a suitably warm and fun Christmas read * My Book Corner *
The joy of this books is in the detail... each stylish spread contains lots to look and laugh at. Beautifully depicts our traditions and our relationship with the Royal Family... brilliant. * Rhino Reads *
I absolutely adored this book... perfectly executed with style and grace... captures London perfectly. This is a story for all generations and a brilliant, British book to boot. It's almost beyond words... every British household needs a copy, whether or not you're George's, William's or Charles's generation. * * * * * * Bookbag *
A treat for winter reading * The Bookbag *
All carefully drawn in a muted palate of festive red, green and white, the illustrations are mind-boggling -- rows upon rows of tiny green elves line the Sydney Opera House -- and the ending is a timely reminder that love, not consumerism, is the true meaning of Christmas * Belfast Telegraph *
An awesome adventure. A wonderful romp of a read that's a great introduction to London, royalty and all that makes Britain great. * The Sun *
Hilarious... chuckles aplenty with every turn of the page... wonderful illustrations... if this debut is anything to go by, Steve Antony's creative talent is one to follow with interest. * * * * * Books for Keeps *
A witty and stylish celebration of the Queen and the world's best known landmarks * Chronicle Live.co.uk *
A festive tale about the Queen's quest to find the perfect presents for her great-grandchildren. Stunning to look at and lots of fun * Scottish Daily Express *
A red and green triumph by Steve Antony...Full of elves, reindeer and quirky details to spot The Queen's Present is a welcome and worthy addition to this picture book series. * The Scotsman *
A magical tour of the world's most famous landmarks * Eastern Daily Press *
As in the book's predecessors, The Queen's Hat and The Queen's Handbag, her majesty is followed by an entourage of tiny loyal subjects, this time green-clad elves, creating a visually striking picture book using only the red and green colours of Christmas * Evening Echo (Cork) *
