About this book

From Steve Antony, the author and illustrator of Please, Mr. Panda, I'll Wait, Mr. Panda, and Green Lizards VS. Red Rectangles.

A very naughty thief has stolen the Queen's handbag! There's only one thing to do: chase the thief all over the landmarks of Great Britain! Hold on to your hats and join the Queen in this epic wild goose chase after one sneaky swan by car, motorbike, plane, boat, and more to get her handbag back!

Young children will love the search-and-find fun of the story, the hysterical mayhem that breaks loose, and Steve Antony's winning art style. The Queen's Handbag celebrates some of Great Britain's most famous sites, like Stonehenge and Edinburgh Castle, and back matter explains their significance.


Praise for The Queen's Handbag
"That feisty queen is at it again . . . Well, readers won't miss out, as the queen, corgi in tow, chases the swan on her own frenzied tour across the UK." -- Booklist

Praise for The Queen's Hat

"The blue, red, and black cartoon illustrations on white pages are the highlight here, with humorous details aplenty." -- School Library Journal

Praise for Please, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony

"Smart design decisions by Antony ... distinguish his visual storytelling. The warm gray backdrop and parade of black and white animals (a skunk, an ostrich, an orca) make the candy-colored doughnuts look all the more tantalizing. Novel perspectives ... provide freshness, too." -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for Betty Goes Bananas by Steve Antony

"Childlike illustrations in pencil and graphite sticks ... draw children into Betty's life with humor. ... Teachers and parents of short-fused toddlers will read this over and over." -- Kirkus Reviews
