“O Bandit Queen!” the bandits cried.
“Little horror! Poison weed!
We’ll give you everything a queen could ever need…”
The bandits give their queen treasure, tigers, mischief and mayhem. But sometimes a little girl needs something more…
I received a copy of this from Netgalley. My thanks to the publisher for this opportunity. These are my honest thoughts of the book.
I adored Hortense and the Shadow, the debut book by the O’Hara sisters, so when I got approved for this on netgalley, I was very happy indeed. The Bandit Queen is an adorable little story full of mischief and rebellion. It has a sweet underlying message about finding your tribe and belonging. The artwork is stunning. I am such a fan of Lauren’s art.
I bought a hardback copy of this for my neice, 8 year old Maddie. Maddie loves Hortense and she’s read it hundreds of times. When she found out there was a new book coming from the O’Haras, she was rather excited! I told her she might be a little too old for this now, but she responded, “Just because I’m older doesn’t mean I can’t still read kids books!” She’s totes right. She couldn’t wait to get her hands on this and her eyes lit up when I gave it to her. I asked her for some feedback.
Oh my god I love it so much! I love the girl and how she becomes a queen! I’m gonna be a queen because now I’m a princess and princesses become queens. I like the poems. It’s just so beautiful just like in Hortense! Heart eyes.
Anyway, we’re off to spit peas on the floor and bang pots until three! Until next time, Peace and Love!
