Summary

“There once is a queen ever constant to her people....” 

From the nation’s favourite storyteller Sir Michael Morpurgo comes a poetic celebration of our queen and longest reigning monarch. 

There once was a little girl, born a princess. While she was still a young woman, she became a queen, our Queen Elizabeth. Now, 70 years later, her reign as the longest serving female monarch in history has seen her stand steadfast through triumph and tribulation, and through the monumental changes that have shaped our world. This remarkable queen has remained devoted to crown, to country...and a corgi or two!

Beginning with the queen as a little girl, planting an oak tree with her father, There Once Is a Queen follows her incredible story in a way that will bring this historic reign vividly to life for listeners, big and small, around the globe. An exquisite gift book and commemoration of the Platinum Jubilee, it marks a unique moment in our shared history and will be a treasured keepsake for generations to come.
