Book Description

4 July 2013
Everyone is thrilled when it's announced that their favourite princess is going to have a baby. Speculation starts immediately. What will the baby be like? Will it be a boy or a girl . . . tall or short? Will it be hairy like the old king? Or sporty and fearless like the knights?

The questions go on and on as the Princess grows larger. But soon the Prince and the Princess don't mind anymore. They know that they will love their baby whatever it is like . . .

Set in a timeless kingdom, this is an irreverently funny and heart-warming story that celebrates the joy and excitement of a new baby.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very appealing Royal Baby Story 14 Nov 2013
By Beansmummy TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
With all the hype over the real royal baby, books like this were inevitable. This one was particularly good; well written, appealing to my daughter (5) and a lovely way to start discussions in a family expecting another baby. It shows an older sibling that parents are really just concerned that their children are happy, and not about what they might achieve etc. I rather liked the fact that at the end there is still some mystery.
Great artwork, fun story. Ideal for older siblings being prepared for a new baby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute 30 Oct 2013
By M. J. Saxton VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Ideal for children in a family where there's going to be a new baby; also a good book for children when they start to ask questions about babies.

A clear story that introduces the idea of inquisitiveness and says it is alright to ask those questions as long as you realise the answers aren't too important.

There's a cheerfulness about it that makes it a little gem of a book. Great illustrations in a traditional style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super illustrations in an easy-read book 29 Dec 2013
By JB TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A pleasant fairy-tale style book based (probably) on a real-life Prince and
Princess. For me it's a tongue in cheek poke at the press / media speculation
the surrounds royal affairs.

The text is fairly large and well spaced making it an easy read for young
children. The book has around thirty pages, each with a super illustration
by Tony Ross (of Little Princess and Horrid Henry fame), and for me and
my daughters the illustrations are the main attraction of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Royal Baby 28 Nov 2013
By S. Wilson TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a lovely little story set around a fictional prince and princess (I highly suspect it's centered around Will and Kate especially with the dedication at the end from Tony Ross which states "For Catherine and William") and the question as to when are they going to have a baby and once the princess is pregnant what will the baby be like. We are expecting our second baby very soon and so I thought this was a lovely little story to read to my son although I'm not too sure that he fully understands he is soon to have a little brother or sister but he did enjoy looking at the pictures and I personally enjoyed the story. The story has the underlying theme that it doesn't matter what a baby will be like or whether it's a boy or a girl as they will be loved regardless and it's probably the pregnancy hormones but I really liked it and thought it was a sweet story. The book is left with the unanswered question of whether they had a boy or a girl and again I think this is nice especially for parents like us who have opted not to find out. A charming and lovely little story with brilliant illustrations (which I think are more tailored to the older child) and I prefer to think of it as another little story rather than an attempted cash in on Kate and Will.

By JK TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Medium sized, soft covered book with sophisticated illustrations and a simple, easy to follow story focusing on a newly married Prince and Princess and the huge interest surrounding 'when will they have a baby'.

The concept for the book is so obviously the story of Kate and Wills even though it's set in a fictional land and the names have mostly been changed. What's it all about? Not a lot really. The whole concept hinges on what the baby will look like when it's born. Once the baby arrives it's a boy and, guess what, they call him George.

Illustrations are nice even if somewhat subdued but my problem is simply that I'm not sure where the market for this book really lies. It's absolutely not for young children, who tend not be very interested in either pregnancy or childbirth, and the illustrations/subject matter won't appeal to older children who'll find it dull. My grandchildren haven't picked the book up again since our first quick read through and they're pretty good critics.

Even as a collectible souvenir of the Royal birth the concept doesn't work because it's supposedly fictional.

Nothing at all wrong with the book, it's OK, but it's altogether sort of quirky and not something I'd order again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expected more 4 Oct 2013
By K. Wright VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I read this book to a class of 6-year-olds and they were a not particularly gripped with the story and the non-ending is certainly a disappointment when reading aloud. It's not a terrible story but it definitely seems like it's a cash-in on the real royal baby, even though it already feels outdated. It isn't humorous and it is likely only to appeal to much younger children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 'expectant' story 27 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A lovely book describing the hopes and dreams of parents as they await the birth of their baby. Also looking at odd traits if family members and wondering if their little darling will display these when born! Great story for assuring young child just how much they were wanted. Parallels to a certain royal family?

Lovely story by Tony Bradman and illustrations by Tony Ross, obviously mirroring the birth of Prince George. It's a nice book for ages 2-6.
