The Queen’s Feet by Sarah Ellis

Cover Image

Queen Daisy has trouble with her feet–they just won’t behave!  They want to jump into ponds, crash up and down stairs in heavy boots, dance the hornpipe, and even kick visiting royalty in the ankle.  Even though Queen Daisy apologizes, her people tell her that “something must be done about those feet, once and for all”.  So Queen Daisy calls for help, especially from the “footmen” in the kingdom, and a compromise is reached.  

The cartoonish illustrations are colorful and simple, with large pictures on white backgrounds.  They keep the focus of the book on the feet, as Queen Daisy is pictured from the ankles down throughout most of the book.

This is a fun story for those who can’t keep their feet still!
