#var:page_name# cover

Join us to celebrate the launch of this fantastic new adventure for young readers by new Irish children's author, Alison Healy! The book is illustrated by established Irish artist Fintan Taite.

The book will be launched by the brilliant, clever and terribly lovely Alan Nolan – author and illustrator of many, many books for children including Conor's Caveman, The Big Break Detectives and Fintan's Fifteen.


What do you do when the Queen is struggling with a knotty maths problem that only you, Billy Brown, can explain? You travel to her palace in the middle of the night and help the nation, of course! In return, the Queen now wants to come and visit – and you can’t say no to royalty.

But the Queen’s suitcase contains two tiaras, a spare crown, three evening gowns, a silk dress and a pair of green wellingtons – nothing remotely suitable for visiting the bottle bank. Fitting in is tricky when you’re so magnificently different.

A right royal riot of a read!
