A fabulously funny picture book to celebrate the arrival of the Royal Baby.
About the Author
MARTHA MUMFORD has loved children's books forever. Her mother was a librarian which gave her access to a wonderful array of books from a very early age. Shhh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby is her first children's picture book and she is delighted to be working with Bloomsbury. Martha loves baking, patchwork and has a mild obsession with interiors magazines (although she freely admits that the ideas she has found therein have yet to be translated to the interior of her own home!). Martha lives in Berkshire with her husband and young daughter.
ADA GREY has worked as a successful illustrator of cards, gifts and stationery for many years, and now she is very excited to have developed a strong and appealing new illustration style for picture books. Shhh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby is her first picture book for Bloomsbury. Ada lives in Brighton with her family.

I took it straight into the classroom to read to the children, this was so exciting as the children know we are still waiting for the baby to arrive!
This story is all about trying to get the baby to sleep and people around making too much noise. This is a nice story that includes many of the Royal Family. The children loved the illustrations and laughed out loud at parts of the book.
The children loved to join in with the story when they had recognised the pattern in text. They also loved it when the baby started crying and again and joined in.
I feel this is very topical at the moment and was an enjoyable, humorous read. I would recommend this book.
Booked arrived this morning and it is very cute. My little girl loves all the Corgis.
I was very happy to find that it isnt about a generic Royal Family it is Our Royal family and Pippa even makes an appearance.
very happy with this purchase.

As the description said the royal baby just won't sleep and the royal parent s and grandparents try a whole host of ways to try and get him to settle down. The Duke takes him for a helicopter ride, the Queen takes him parachuting, he is read stories and so forth. But every time they succeed in getting the royal baby to sleep something in the royal household wakes him up again, my personal favourite was Prince Harry and Pippa preparing a party to celebrate his arrival with the cry of `More blini's'. Indeed this is a funny book, seeing the royals trying to get this baby to sleep in weird ways is amusing, some of the humour made me smile more than my daughters who didn't always get the joke.. They did enjoy the story and find some of it funny though.
The illustrations are a great back up to the story, the depictions of the royal family are recognisable and add to the enjoyment. The Queen in a onesie with crowns all over it and pink fluffy slippers was great (but one of things that will have made me smile more than my daughters). The girls liked the pictures of the soldiers, the corgi's and the funny things they did with the baby.
Verdict:This is a light-hearted story that can please adults as well as children. Any parent knows the frustrations of trying to and quiet down a crying baby! It is a nice piece of memorabilia for children to enjoy now qand look back on later.
