From the award-winning creator of The Queen's Hat and The Queen's Handbag comes a third hilarious Christmas tale taking the reader on a whirlwind royal tour of the world!

The Queen has raced around London and dashed all over the UK. Now she is setting off around the world in search of the perfect Christmas present - and she's not alone. Father Christmas is here to help!

From the North Pole to the Sydney Opera House, via the State of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids and more - will the Queen find a gift that is truly special? And who is it for?!

A witty and stylish celebration of the Queen and the world's best known landmarks, 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.
