A witty and stylish celebration of London, the Queen and the royal family's new baby. And with a celebratory sparkly red foiled cover.

A sudden gust of wind sets off a marvellous London adventure for the Queen, the Queen's men and one very special hat. So let's follow one determined, daredevil queen through the zoo, over Tower Bridge and up Big Ben... just where will that hat land?

Winner of the Evening Standard's Oscar's First Book prize and shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book prize, with a Jon Klassen appeal, Steve Antony, a debut author-illustrator, is the one to watch.

'This is a wonderful romp of a read that's a great introduction to London, royalty and all that makes Britain great.' - The Sun

'... this picture book is hard to beat for its sweet simplicity and charming monochromatic drawings.' - The Times
