Shhh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby - Martha Mumford,Aga Grey

The Royal Family has a new addition, a little baby boy. Sadly this little baby boy can't sleep, or at least, not long enough.

It was a really adorable book, I loved the baby and how the poor thing just wanted to sleep but couldn't because of all the noises in the palace. All the characters are easily recognizable, from the Duchess and Duke to the Queen, and Prince (not King) Charles). Especially loved how the Queen looked so normal, and happy. Really liked how she likes jumping out of plans with a parachute (nice hint to a certain Olympics where it seemed she was jumping out of a helicopter?). 

The illustrations were really colourful and nice, adding lots of little details.

The ideas to get the kid to sleep were hilarious at most times, and simple at best. The last page was really a nice closer, the whole Royal Family is now asleep.

Bonuspoints for adding super adorable corgis. I had fun seeking out those and laughing at how silly they looked at times.

A really cute book, and I would recommend it to everyone. :)

Shhh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby - Martha Mumford,Aga Grey The Royal Baby was sleeping. But then...

KA-CHING! KA-CHING! KA-CHING!

"Oh no, what's that noise?" moaned the Royal Nanny.

She opened the window, and saw that it was thousands of merchandisers cashing in on a fortunate opportunity. Within seconds, the Royal Baby was awake again.

WAH! WAH! WAH!

"What are we going to do?" asked the haggard Prince. Everyone looked at each other, and then the Cleverest Princess spoke up.

"Leave this to me!" she said.

She took out her copy of Shh! Don't Wake the Royal Baby and started reading.

She read one page.

She read two pages.

She read three pages...

... and the baby was asleep!

"Well!" she said to herself. "That was easy!" Then she looked round...

... and found that the whole Royal Family was asleep too!

Yes, the book was so dull that every single one of them had dropped off.

"Even better than I'd expected," said the Cleverest Princess. "I'll be able to read some Proust instead of this fucking mass-produced crap." [Surely some mistake? - Ed.]
