Product Details


Wadham makes a terrific debut; his rhythmic prose and comic pacing feel elegant and effortless, and he handles his diminutive fantasist and her parents with the kind of unaffected empathy that can elude more experienced authors. He’s also fortunate in his collaborator—Denton (A Visitor for Bear) wonderfully conveys the story’s impishness, emotional subtleties, and familial affections. Just watching the queen strut her regal stuff is worth the price alone
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Will read easily for the first or one hundredth time–it’s a story that will never grow tired. Soft, delicate cartoons in ink, watercolor, and gouache capture the essence of Rose and her alter ego…The quiet simplicity is feminine without the frou-frou and frills. Rose will be an inspiration for many young princesses
—School Library Journal (starred review)
