Yesterday's online Book Standard published a short article about a children's book party to be held for the Queen of England's 80th birthday this summer. The Queen will mingle with about 1000 children, as well as various children's book characters, authors, and actors. "Paddington Bear, Bob The Builder, Thomas The Tank Engine, Mowgli, Winnie the Pooh, Postman Pat, the BFG and the White Rabbit are amongst the cast lined up. J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and Children's Laureate Jacqueline Wilson will also appear."
All I have to say is, how can I get an invitation to that party? -- Jen
