The Queen Of France & Charlotte's Very Own Dress (Ex-Library HC.DJ Picture Books)
The Queen of France
Dressed up as a queen, a little girl has some endearing and funny audiences with two most obliging subjects — her mother and father.
When Rose wakes up one morning feeling royal, she dons her necklaces, bracelets, and crown. Soon the Queen of France emerges to survey her domain, disapproving of Rose’s mother’s thorny gardening choices and asking Rose’s father where the Royal Physician may be found. The odd thing is, when Rose returns to look for the Queen of France, she’s nowhere to be seen. And when the imperious queen comes back, she’s curious to know what Rose’s parents would think if she traded places with their little girl? With charming illustrations by Kady MacDonald Denton and a humorous tale by Tim Wadham, here is a sweet homage to the easy affection between parents and an imaginative child.
Charlotte's Very Own Dress
This deliciously illustrated modern-day Cinderella tale (with a healthier dose of sisterly love) is sure to enchant young fashionistas . . . or anyone with a sister.
Charlotte Bartlett-Kruger is the youngest of six sisters, which means she gets lots of hand-me-downs. And while she is happy to inherit her sisters’ well-loved toys, dresses are a different story. Dresses just aren’t pretty by the time they are passed down to Charlotte.
When her parents decide to have a fancy dress-up party, Charlotte is so embarrassed by her clothes that she would rather skip the party than go in something tattered and old. But her sisters just might have an extraordinary surprise in store for her. . . .
