Here's what you say about us...

Steve Antony - a graduate from the prestigious
Children's Book Illustration MA at the Cambridge School of Art - is the author-illustrator of The Queen's Hat and Please Mr Panda. Only debuting in 2014, Steve has had enormous success: The Queen's Hat won the Evening Standard's Oscar's First Book Prize, and was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Please Mr Panda was chosen as Picture Book of the Month by US retailer Barnes & Noble, who held over 650 Panda events over one weekend.

Steve aims to create picture books
that are slightly 'off the wall', books that children will
laugh at and
adults will tweet about, but most of all, books that he
enjoys.

A certain future classic, and without a doubt my absolute new favourite picture book.

This has become a wonderful series - so clever, yet so simple and very funny... A wonderful book, full of humour and such fun to read and to share
Parents In Touch

The Queen's Present is a delightful addition to The Queen Collection, and a suitably warm and fun Christmas read
My Book Corner

The joy of this books is in the detail... each stylish spread contains lots to look and laugh at. Beautifully depicts our traditions and our relationship with the Royal Family... brilliant.
Rhino Reads

I absolutely adored this book... perfectly executed with style and grace... captures London perfectly. This is a story for all generations and a brilliant, British book to boot. It's almost beyond words... every British household needs a copy, whether or not you're George's, William's or Charles's generation. * * * * *
Bookbag

A treat for winter reading
The Bookbag

All carefully drawn in a muted palate of festive red, green and white, the illustrations are mind-boggling -- rows upon rows of tiny green elves line the Sydney Opera House -- and the ending is a timely reminder that love, not consumerism, is the true meaning of Christmas
Belfast Telegraph

An awesome adventure. A wonderful romp of a read that's a great introduction to London, royalty and all that makes Britain great.
The Sun

Hilarious... chuckles aplenty with every turn of the page... wonderful illustrations... if this debut is anything to go by, Steve Antony's creative talent is one to follow with interest. * * * *
