The Queen’s Hat
If you are planning to visit London this half term then ‘The Queen’s Hat’ by Steve Anthony is a definite must. Whilst the text may be minimal the illustrations are fabulous. Each page features a famous London landmark and soldiers, in a drawing style very reminiscent of artist LS Lowry. Children will have great fun trying to identify the well known sights while at the same time be captivated by the highly detailed drawings. If the authors name sounds familiar, yes you’re right, Steve Anthony was also responsible for Please Mister Panda and whilst his illustration style may vary, his appeal is sure to remain.
