"The Queen's Lift-Off" by Steve Antony (Hodder Children's Books)

Cor, can you believe how well travelled our Queen is? She's been around the world - twice - and now she's rocketing off into the inky blackness of space in Steve Antony's fourth book in his hilarious rib-tickling series featuring our jet-setting monarch in "The Queen's Lift Off"

With an extra-special royal rocket, and a whole host of extras, this tale takes us on a fantastic journey around our Solar System with The Queen finding out all about space and the planets we share a galaxy with.

Steve's trademark busy and super-detailed illustrations for this series are once again fantastic, with tons of clever little in-jokes and characters to spot (always keep an eye out for those aliens, who keep popping up in this rambunctuous solar-system-wide chase!

Good lord, where's the queen off to now?
Thankfully Queenie is a resourceful old soul and soon gets the hang of piloting her own rocket. Time for a bit of stellar sightseeing then!

Little known fact. Saturn's theme tune is "If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it"
The attention to detail in this fourth book is once again totally excellent, and we can't wait for littlies to get their hands on this one.

Sum this book up in a sentence: A stellar journey for an adventuresome monarch, time to join The Queen as she rules over space!

"The Queen's Lift Off" by Steve Antony is out now, published by Hodder Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
