... and now for something completely different

Happy birthday, Royal baby!

Martha Mumford, illustrated by Ada Grey
Bloomsbury Children’s Books
ISBN: 9781408854822          RRP: $15 (pbk)

You may remember a book about one year ago on the impending arrival of a right royal baby. The same team now has a book to celebrate his right royal first birthday, with the same respectful dose of British satire as the original. It’s all-
star royal smashing fun but one thing surprised me: George is already shown as a right royal toddler. Considering at least three months lead into this book, how did they know about that? No doubt another royal leak from the palace! If you have the original, you must have this companion.
