The Queen of France by Tim Wadham. Illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton.

Wadham, Tim. Denton, Kady MacDonald (Illustrator). The Queen of France, Junior Library Guild Selection, 32 pgs. Candlewick , 2011. $16.99. Language-G; Violence-G; Sexual Content-G. Inside cover: “When Rose woke up that morning, she felt royal. So she dons her necklaces, bracelets, and crown and off she goes- The Queen of France- to find Rose’s mother. Here is a sweet homage to the easy affection between parent and an imaginative child.” We loved this book! The illustrations were wonderful! The story is sentimental and humorous. We loved the ending! One of our favorites. EL (K-3). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: SL
