On Wednesday, Thelma is bored―so she decides to become a queen. She makes the royal announcement on Thursday and chooses the royal pets on Friday. But she needs a castle to keep the pets, and royally qualified trainers to tame them, and of course someone to clean up after the messes. It's enough to give a queen a royal headache. And when Thelma realizes that there aren't enough beds to hold her royal staff, she flings off her crown and decides that maybe being a regular girl isn't so boring after all.

Filled with playful humor and stunning artwork, Queen on Wednesday marks renowned illustrator Gabi Swiatkowska's debut as a picture book author.

About the Author:

Gabi Swiatkowska has illustrated many notable books for children, including My Name Is Yoon, for which she received the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Award, and, most recently, Please, Papa, and Thank You, Mama by Kate Banks. She lives in France.

From Booklist:

Since Sunday, wide-eyed Thelma has been bored. So by Wednesday, she decides to shake things up and make herself queen. She dons a crown, puts on a gown with voluminous panniers, makes an official announcement, and appoints a coterie of royal pets. But all is not well in the kingdom once Thelma discovers how much help she needs to keep her queenly gears running smoothly. After hiring some animal trainers, a maid, a cook, and a royal nurse to heal her royal headache, she fitfully abdicates and is on to a new scheme by the following Wednesday. Award-winning illustrator Swiatkowska makes her authorial debut in this story of a young girl with a vivid imagination and a week-long attention span. The children in her delightfully weird paintings look like they have stepped out of a nineteenth-century painting and into an absurd wonderland full of odd animals and objects that juxtapose amusingly. It’s a familiar story of imaginative play, but Swiatkowska’s whimsical pictures set it apart. Hand this to kids who are drawn—or are happy to be introduced—to unconventional illustrations. Preschool-Grade 1. --Sarah Hunter
