Even a monarch needs a best friend and Queen Elizabeth II found one in a corgi pup she named Susan. From princesshood to queendom the pair forged an unbreakable bond, with Susan even participating in Elizabeth’s wedding day and joining her on honeymoon with Prince Philip. Over the course of her remarkable seventy-year reign the Queen had more than thirty corgi companions, and almost all were direct descendants of her cherished Susan.

About the Author

Caroline has been writing for grown-ups for many years, but The Corgi and the Queen is her first picture book for children. She was born in the UK but currently resides in California with her husband and three corgi-loving kids.

Lydia Corry attended the Royal College of Art and has been a devoted illustrator ever since who specializes in watercolor, ink, and gouache.


"A sweet sidelight cast on Britain's longest reigning monarch and her furry, four-legged retinue." --Kirkus

"Introducing Elizabeth first as an unpretentious child, Perry's precisely worded text portrays the down-to-earth side of the monarch. The expressive illustrations, created with pencil, watercolor, and gouache, complete this appealing portrayal of the queen and her beloved pet." --Booklist
