Clearful and the Queen
In the story of Clearful and the Queen, Lali and Abba, her big sister, decided that they should tell the Queen the story of the new word so they embarked on an amazing adventure, assisted by their speical pet cat, called Smokey.
After they invented their new word, "Clearful" they thought it best to tell the Queen that they had invented a new word.
So they wrote a letter to the Queen explaining all about the new word, which they had invented during a visit to their grandparents' house.
Much to their delight and surprise, the Queen writes back to them and even more spectacular, the Queen decides to invite them to tea!
They set out on a simply stunning adventure to travel from their house to Buckingham Palace to accept their invitation.
This is a charming and exceptionally well illustrated book written by M J Exon (who in her day job is the Managing Director of BBH, a leading creative agency) and illustrated by Sid Russell, who is a highly talented artist and designer who is head of BBH's Design Department.
The book costs a remarkably reasonable £6.99 and will delight both parents, grandparents and children.
It is published by Matador and is available via the The That's Books and Entertainment book shop, which you will find to the right of this review.
