An Invite from the Queen
Fruits from all over the world have been invited to a party by The Queen! Excited, they squeeze into a car and set off for the palace. Rana the Banana has put on her best dress, Monsieur Hercule le Poire is hoping his charms will impress. But Cassandra the Gooseberry has a prickly feeling that something’s not right…
An Invite from The Queen is a musical in a book. In CD format, the fantastic musical score, specially composed for the story, is brought to life by Griff Rhys Jones’s humorous narration and a band of over 40 musicians and singers. This gorgeous and light-hearted storybook filled with delicious fruity illustrations, introduces little ones to different cultures through music, while encouraging healthy eating and a first awareness of where our food comes from.
We’ve listened every day to the funky, catchy tunes. The children love and it has kept us dancing and grooving every day.
