The Queen's Shadow: A Story about How Animals See

Author(s): Cybèle Young


After a power outage at the Queen's Ball, the miffed monarch realizes her shadow is missing. And so begins a most unusual investigation as Mantis Shrimp, the Royal Detective, questions each guest: Sir Chameleon, Captain Shark, Lancehead Snake, Goat, Dragonfly, Colossal Squid, Dr. Pigeon and the young sea urchins, Romanoff and Echino. Each suspect pleads his or her case, illuminating fascinating facts about how each creature sees. A highly original and visually arresting book from Governor General's Award–winner Cybèle Young.
