About the book:
Can Ellie and her furry friends get everything ready in time for tea with the Queen?
One day there was a knock at Ellie’s door. There stood the Queen’s Footman.
“A message from Her Royal Highness.” He offered Ellie a note on a silver tray.
May I please come for tea?
The Queen Herself
When Ellie finds out the Queen is coming to tea, she snaps to attention! With her best friend, Langley the Elephant, Ellie travels to Paris, China, Italy, and New York to make sure they have everything they need for tea with the Queen. But will the Queen patiently wait? And what exactly will be waiting for the Queen?
