The Day We Met the Queen
Ten-year-old Ahmet has become the Most Famous Refugee Boy in the World. In fact, he’s so famous even the queen wants to meet him – and his four best friends! So they’re off to Buckingham Palace, with a list of questions for her and one special challenge: will she help more refugee children like Ahmet? But when their journey is unexpectedly interrupted by an old enemy, it will take some quick thinking and an ingenious plan to make it to the palace – and the queen – on time. A heartfelt and humorous new story from Onjali Q. Raúf, the bestselling and multi-award-winning author of The Boy at the Back of the Class.
