Rhyming story fun to read

QUEEN ALICE'S PALACES<br><b>Juliette MacIver, Lucia Masciullo</b><br><i>ABC Books</i>
Queen Alice has a fancy palace.

The dastardly Sir Hugh wants one too, preferably built and paid for by the Queen.

But Alice is nobody's fool, building castle after castle from improbable materials, each one failing spectacularly.

From bamboo to ice to cheese to smoke, the palaces are beautifully and humorously imagined, drawn and destroyed.

Author Juliette MacIver (The Frog Who Lost His Underpants) has written yet another story that's both funny and fun to read, thanks to smooth-flowing, inventive rhymes.

Ages 2-5.

- Laura Hewson is an ODT subeditor and mother.
