A Love Reading for Schools Book of the Month

Nobody notices the queen on the corner. Nobody, that is...except one young girl. Through her eyes, the woman who dwells in the abandoned plot is a warrior queen, with many battles fought and won. When, one day, danger comes to the street and the queen on the corner sounds the alarm, the little girl must find a way to thank her. Can she bring the community together to turn the queen’s corner into a home?

"A beautiful and thought provoking book for children - and adults - that shines a light on some of the issues surrounding homelessness. And it’s inspired by real people. Like the author says: Look out for the Queens and Kings.” – Max Newton, Head of Community Fundraising, Shelter

"Told  from the viewpoint of a small child,  Lucy Christopher's new picture book gently reminds us that everyone has a story - struggles and successes, ups and downs - and everyone needs a place to call home!" – Julia Green, children's author

"Sweet and thought-provoking" – Kirkus Reviews

"This is a tale of looking for the inherent worth of everybody, in particular homeless people, and trying one’s best to understand and support them" – Books for Keeps, 5 Stars
