This book is FUN. Ordinary, even dowdy, Mrs Armitage is given a car by her Uncle Cosmo and tries out life on the open road with her faithful dog Breakspear. They lose one bit after another in an amusing series of mishaps until all that they are left with pretty much is the seats, engine and chassis. Then they happen to bump into Uncle Cosmo who doesn't recognize Mrs Armitage's vehicle as his old car and thinks she's driving a mean machine. So he and his biker mates invite her to don a leather jacket and lead the way to the crazy duck café. It's a great story that brings a smile to both children and adults and Quentin Blake's illustrations are up to his ever-fanastic standard. I think this is the best Mrs Armitage title but would also highly recommend 'Mrs Armitage on wheels' which is a great pair to this story where instead of losing bit after bit Mrs Armitage adds one thing after another to her bicycle. Perfect from age 3 and a definite hit in our house with children and adults.

This is a brilliant book and a firm favourite with my six year old son. We first read it about 2 years ago at bedtime. He laughed so much that he wet himself and I had to change his PJs and the bedlinen! Definitely a memorable story for many reasons.

This is a book of a women called Mrs Armitage and she gets a car from her uncle. She is really bad at driving. Mrs Armitage is really unlucky.

This book is hilarious because all the bits fall off her car. It is marvellous because she does not just drive around the city she goes in the country side. She meets her uncle and his mates. Then her uncles mates give her some things. They call her queen of the road. Katy M Year 3.

This book was extremaly funny because Mrs Armitage was crashing into things.I thought the funniest part was when the car did not have any parts at all and it was still driving.The illustrations were fabulous and terrific.They also gave you more infomation about the story. I would give this book 10 out of 10 it was brilliant. Aiden Year 3

My daughter adores Roald Dahl books, and was introduced to Quentin Blake's own stories at school. His stories are always vibrant, with colorful and descriptive language. This story does not disappoint. My daughter found the story funny especially when parts of Mrs Amitage's car fell off, and somebody reverses in to her car bonnet.

Really funny book for children aged around 2-9.

Mrs Armitage keeps having accidents and disasters which the children find hilarious. Quentin Blake's illustrations are great and really add to the humour.

Would also make a good novely present for an adult who has dubious driving skills!

My group thinks that Mrs Armitage Queen of the Road is very funny because she keeps on crashing into things in her car and when she crashes she takes the broken pieces to the scrape yard. In the end she only has the chassis
