Customer Reviews

This is a beautifully illustrated children’s book about a little orphan girl, stolen by the raucous, unruly bunch of the “best of all bandits”. The bandits then adopt her as their queen, as they are in awe of her horribleness: she “screeched and roared, and peed on the floor. Yelled and turned red, then bit them instead. Yodelled and crowed and hollered ‘NOOOO!”. She is given every material thing she wants, but what she eventually realises she needs, is some structure in her life, friends and adults to guide her as she grows up. The bandits have to grow up too, and find new ways to occupy themselves and new sources of (less anti-social) enjoyment. “it feels scary to grow, but less when you know that someone you love can show you the way” Young children will be entranced by the pictures, and the wild life of the bandits and their queen. But most will come to agree with the queen in the end – anarchy and chaos are all very well for a short time, but safe boundaries and rules, with people you love and trust are worth more than all the presents in the world. The book is written in rhyme, and has an ending (or new beginning) designed to continue to excite children’s imagination after the book is read. I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
