Nobody notices the queen on the corner. Nobody, that is…except one young girl. Through her eyes, the woman who dwells in the abandoned plot is a warrior queen, with many battles fought and won. When, one day, danger comes to the street and the queen on the corner sounds the alarm, the little girl must find a way to thank her. Can she bring the community together to turn the queen’s corner into a home?

Publisher Review

"A beautiful and thought-provoking book for children - and adults - that shines a light on some of the issues surrounding homelessness. And it's inspired by real people. Like the author says: Look out for the Queens and Kings"-Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity; "Told from the viewpoint of a small child, Lucy Christopher's new picture book gently reminds us that everyone has a story - struggles and successes, ups and downs - and everyone needs a place to call home!"-Julia Green, children's author; "This hopeful tale uses a youthful view of the world to imagine what our society could be like if all people and their experiences were valued and respected. Sweet and thought-provoking"-Kirkus Reviews; "This is a tale of looking for the inherent worth of everybody, in particular homeless people, and trying one's best to understand and support them"-Books for Keeps, 5 Stars
