From the award-winning creator of THE QUEEN'S HAT, THE QUEEN'S HANDBAG and THE QUEEN'S PRESENT comes a fourth hilarious tale taking the reader on a whirlwind royal tour of space!

The Queen has been round the UK, and the world - twice! - and now she's off to space!

Perfectly ties in with the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in 2019.

A witty and stylish celebration of THE QUEEN'S HAT, created by Steve Antony, winner of the Oscar's First Book Prize, nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
