Even the Queen of England has to get up and groomed to greet the day
Get up, Elizabeth! It’s time for the future queen to get out of bed, scrub her face with almond paste, brush her teeth with soot, comb the tangles out of her unruly red hair, get dressed, and sit still while her ruff is sewn on and her sleeves are pinned. It’s rough rising and shining every day—for queens and kids alike.
Shirin Yim Bridges is the author of the award-winning Ruby’s Wish as well as Get Up, Elizabeth! and Go to Bed, Ted!, both published by Cameron Kids. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Fiona Lee is an illustrator who lives and works on her family’s farm in Vermont.
"The Elizabeth of the title is none other than a very young Queen Elizabeth I (still technically a princess in these pages), and any reader who’s been thrust into a stifling party outfit will have built-in empathy as little Bess is roused from her comfy four poster bed and prepped for a big court appearance."
