Description

Bouncy rhymes chronicle a little girl's musing as to just what exactly is inside the queen's purse.

the purse made Kay wonderWhat would a queen need?A bag full of money?A good book to read?

Award-winning picture book author Frieda Wishinsky brings her gift of humour to this adorable tale of curious young Kay who can't help but wonder what the Queen might carry in her purse. Whimsical artwork by Loufane complements and enhances the wit and charm of this royal send-up, as Kay rhymes off all of the outrageous items that just might be contained in that mysterious purse, until — oops! — the purse springs open and Kay finds out what's really inside!

The Queen’s Secret

What does a queen carry in her purse? Kay has always wondered! Is it a diamond tiara, a box full of candy or a good book to read? When the queen comes to town, Kay discovers her secret but promises not to tell. A sweet tale told in rhyme with bright, vivid illustrations.
