Carol Ann Duffy and Lydia Monks team up for a wonderfully imaginative and delightfully funny story about an unlikely friendship between two very different royals

Bold, bouncy Queen Munch loves nothing more than eating delicious cakes and enormous breakfasts, whereas Queen Nibble is pale, quiet, and likes making necklaces out of raindrops. So when Queen Munch decides to invite Queen Nibble for a visit and win her friendship, the mission seems doomed to fail. But there is more to each Queen than meets the eye and soon a friendship begins to blossom. A longer story than most picture books, Queen Munch and Queen Nibble is the perfect gift for new readers, and a journey into a captivating and fantastical world that will delight young readers over and over again.
