Love, love, love Martha’s Mumford’s sense of humour as she pens a warm tale about struggling to encourage a baby to sleep. Problem is that the Royal Palace has its own set of rather unusual distractions and noises …

Shhh! Don’t Wake the Royal Baby! is rendered utterly charming by Ada Grey’s energetic and vibrant illustrations.
