“El Sombrero de la Reina/The Queen’s Hat” by Steve Antony

A simple, humourous text that follows the flow of the wind that blows the queen’s hat away, bringing about a royal hat chasing through various London landmarks. The illustrations in primary colours are smart and capture the British spirit really well.

Unbeknown to me, I purchased this bilingual edition of The Queen’s Hat and this was the most delightful surprise when I opened the parcel! Bilingual books are not that common and are such a blessing for bilingual families!

My eldest daughter really enjoys the rhythm of the story, and liked it when I told her this queen actually existed and showed her Queen Elisabeth II on Internet, along with her corgies (also featured in the book). She also loved the fact that both Mummy and Daddy could read the story simultaneously to her.
As a bilingual mum, I greatly enjoyed having a bilingual book, and loved the highly stylish illustrations. On a personal note, having been a Londoner, I adore the references to this city as they allow me to talk about it to my daughter.
