Poppy, The Queen and The Seat

Written by Vikki Marmaras

Illustrated by Caterina Metti

Poppy is a princess and she wants to sit.

Of course, she deserves the best, and the queen goes to extraordinary lengths to soothe her daughter's tantrum. Even giving up her throne!

But, alas, that is not the best seat in the palace.

A multicultural duo for a tempestuous story—this new picture book is bursting with an eclectic collection of chairs, cuddly animals, rhymes. And a fantastic tantrum.​

If your little human is prone to the occasional tiny tantrum, and if the idea of a quite-simple-solution appeals to you, this book will be a favourite for story time.​
