Boom! Bang! Royal Meringue!


The King and the Queen agree that Princess Hannah deserves the ‘best birthday ever’! What present have they decided upon? It’s gold and huge and covered in buttons and dials, switches and knobs. What happens when the wonderful Princess starts it up before her guests? ‘Boom! Bang! Royal Meringue!

What happens when the King and the Queen suggest that Princess Hannah offer her friends an opportunity to test her sensational present?

‘Boom! Bang! Royal Meringue!’ is laden with cream-puffed onomatopoeia and chock full of humour. Sally Doran’s winding, witty, rhyming text is peppered with fascinating font, speech bubbles and sensory delight!

I love the different perspectives, the wry characterisation of the illustrations. The joy and exaggeration shine in Rachael Saunders’ pictures. What a confectionary sweet, original and amusing delight! ‘Boom! Bang! Royal Meringue!’
