Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize (2007) nominee

Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice, 2007

Queen Daisy can't help it - It's her feet that are misbehaving!

Queen Daisy had a great deal of trouble with her feet. They had a mind of their own and did not like behaving in a royal way. Proper shoes were out of the question, and sometimes her feet did not wear shoes at all! Her feet were especially naughty when Queen Daisy forced them to dress properly. At balls her feet would kick high in the air or tap-dance on the marble palace floors.

Once, when a king from a neighboring kingdom brought his mean, bullying ways to Queen Daisy's court, her feet hauled off and kicked the king in the ankle. That's when a meeting had to be called of all the wise women and wizards and footmen in the kingdom to find a solution to Queen Daisy's terrible problem. And what a solution it turns out to be.

Queen Daisy's feet will dance into the hearts of restless feet everywhere.

Sarah Ellis's wonderfully whimsical tale will ring a bell with all children and adults whose feet get restless. And Dusan Petricic illustrations may well encourage a little more unroyal behavior.

About the Author:

Award-winning author Sarah Ellis grew up in a family that loved to share stories and read books. Passions that lead her to become a children's librarian and eventually to start writing books herself. Ellis's awards include the Governor General's Award, the Mr. Christie's Book Award and the Vicky Metcalf Award. She lives in Vancouver, B.C.

Dusan Petricic immigrated to Canada after a distinguished career as an illustrator in his native Yugoslavia. He started drawing at age four and has received the IBBY Certificate of Honor and an Alberta Book Award for On Tumbledown Hill. Dusan is a cartoonist for The Toronto Star and the New York Review of Books, a father and grandfather, and lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his wife and daughter.

From Publishers Weekly:

Queen Daisy's feet just get itchy for fun. Ellis's (The Several Lives of Orphan Jack) clever text and Petricic's (On Tumbledown Hill) amusing ink-and-watercolor illustrations juxtapose playfulness and propriety with uproarious results, and children will be delighted with the queen's propensity to get herself unintentionally into royal trouble. Petricic appropriately focuses most of the illustrations literally on feet alone, as the courtiers line up to dance or as Queen Daisy's feet kick off proper monarch shoes in favor of fuzzy dog slippers or sandals to show off her purple painted toenails. But when the monarch's feet haul off and kick a visiting bullying king in the shins, she (and her subjects) feels she must address her problem. "The queen and the queen's feet invited all the sages, wise women, wizards, fairy godmothers, and, of course, footmen, in the land to a meeting." Ellis's text brims with puns and eccentric details, and readers will revel in the wise advice of the Queen's counselors: "For one hour each day the queen's feet ruled." With its whimsical humor and its support for the importance of rebellion (in small doses), this foot-stomping read-aloud will please plenty of fidgety youngsters. All ages. (Apr.)
