When Kate P. Green goes for tea with the Queen, she gets more than she bargained for in this hilariously anarchic look at the tricky subject of table manners. Stunning illustrations and design from the creator of Smile! - starring Orchard's new character Sunny McCloud - perfectly complement this exceptionally funny rhyming story from a great new author. Although this book won't teach your child perfect table manners it will provide a witty platform from which the importance of manners and also of enjoying food and mealtimes can be broached.
Caryl is a full time children's writer, who also runs creative workshops with local schools. She lives on the top of a windy hill in the Peak District with her guitar-playing husband, two cheeky daughters, one extremely fluffy black cat, a goldfish, four hens and an invisible dog called Paddy. She spends her spare time digging her allotment and organizing community projects, and going for long walks, especially if they end up at a cafe. Her favourite place is the local library because it's warm and full of books.
