Review by Caleb Pirtle III:
I have a three-year-old granddaughter whose imagination hardly ever changes.
She likes castles.
She likes faraway and magical places.
She likes pomp and circumstance although she has no idea what pomp and circumstance are.
She loves tea parties.
She wants to be a princess.
That’s all about to change.
After hearing The Queen’s Tea by Marvin Mayer, her dreams are different from the ones she used to have
The book is vibrant.
And she no longer wants to be a princess.
A queen will do just fine.
