Brief closing notes on the landmarks depicted follow the caper, but they won’t do much to fill in the gaps for readers unfamiliar with the geography. A jolly British lark but with somewhat limited educational value.

Synopsis

From Steve Antony, the author and illustrator of Please, Mr. Panda, I'll Wait Mr. Pandat, 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 hysterial 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.
