Book Details

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.

"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
