In this book from the critically acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch of modern times.
Little Elizabeth loved dogs and horses and dreamt of living on a farm.
But, one day, she heard chants on the streets. Her uncle Edward had renounced the crown, which meant
her father would be the next king, and she, heiress, to the throne. From that day on, she had to learn how to one day be the queen.
When she was only 13, World War Two
broke out across the globe. Elizabeth bravely served as an ambulance driver, and after the war ended, she fell in love with and married the charming Prince Philip.
In 1952, she was crowned Queen of the United Kingdom, and for the next 60 years and more she would serve as a beacon of continuity, looking after her subjects and serving the country she reigned over.
