Prize-winning poet, Carol Ann Duffy, and top illustrator, Lydia Monks, team up for a wonderfully imaginative gift picture book. "Queen Munch was big with cheeks as red as tomato ketchup...Queen Nibble was as tall and slender and pale as a stick of celery." Queen Munch loves nothing better than a big cooked breakfast. Queen Nibble doesn't like to eat anything at all. Can two such different Queens ever be friends?

It's also a story about risk and transformation, the two queens becoming quite different people by the end; and of the power of close friendship. It's quite long for a book to read to a small child, but really amazingly satisfying.
It's a sweet and amusing story about friendship and embracing our differences; and the illustrations are superb. I would thoroughly recommend it.
