Review:

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!
