The Queen is in danger. It is Diamond Jubilee week and the safety of the Monarch and the celebrations of a nation hang precariously in the balance. So why does Winston Windsor, the Queen’s favourite Corgi, choose now to stow away from his beloved mistress and the safety of Buckingham Palace?
The Queen may be in danger but Winston finds he has problems of his own. From surviving the local dog pound to navigating the perils of public transport, he experiences a side of life never before seen by a pampered royal pooch.
When Winston realises the full extent of the dastardly plot against his mistress, he throws himself into action - but does this short, fat, rather unlikely hero have what it takes to save the Queen, the Diamond Jubilee and the day?
From the pen of bestselling author Melissa Wareham comes Winston Windsor and the Diamond Jubilee, a hilarious and heartwarming tale of friendship, adventure and sausage sandwiches, as told by the Queen’s favourite Corgi.
A fun-filled and action packed read for children of all ages.
