Description

The incredible true story of a young and brilliant Princess who grew up to become our Queen. A perfect picture book to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's big 95th birthday! Once, a very long time ago, there was a little Princess called Elizabeth who loved to play and have fun with her horses, dogs and little sister, Margaret. But when she was ten years old, her life changed forever. From growing up during the Second World War and training as an army mechanic, to celebrating VE day with the people of Britain and marrying Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh - the man she truly loved - this is the amazing true story of a little girl who became Queen Elizabeth II. With fantastically fun, charming and playful illustrations by Pauline Reeves, this picture book will amaze and entertain young readers.
