The Queen On Our Corner Book
A thought-provoking story that encourages us all to sit up and take notice.
Nobody notices the queen on the corner... 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 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?
“This hopeful tale uses a youthful view of the world to imagine what our society could be like if all people and their experiences were valued and respected. Sweet and thought-provoking”―Kirkus Reviews
“Told from the viewpoint of a small child, it 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
