Review: A Royal Fairytale by Ink Robin and Adam Larkum

Publisher: Egmont 
Format: Paperback
Released: June 3rd, 2013
Rating: 7.5/10

Amazon summary:

Introducing Will & Kate, a fun-filled, story of a real-life prince, his beautiful princess, some sheep and a royal romance - and, of course ...a baby! See Kate and Will's romance develop, through their studying days at Edinburgh through to their happily ever after wedding.


This picture book might just be my favourite so far when it comes to the illustrations. They're lovely. My personal favourite is Kate driving off to university with a sheep in the back of her car... haha!

I like the Royal Family and William and Kate just happen to me the people I like most. They're so down to earth, and I think this picture book shows that. Many readers will already know who William and Kate are but, if they don't, A Royal Fairytale is a great introduction to the future King and Queen of England.

There isn't an over abundance of text in this book, rather it focuses more on the eye-catching illustrations. It tells the couple's story in a simple manner, from when they were young through to meeting at university, getting married and eventually expecting a baby.

I'm sure young girls will really enjoy this one, and no doubt the boys will wish they could be a prince like William! This is a very topical book at the moment with Kate's baby due next month and I think it's a beautiful addition to the picture book library. I actually read it twice just so I could look at the illustrations again!
