by Sue Townsend
The royal family is made to live like commoners. Rather shoddily written compared to some Townsend books, but very, very
funny. The fact that the whole story was the Queen's nightmare was
obvious from line one – but then, it couldn't have been anything but a
nightmare, and it couldn't have been anything but obvious that it was.
The ending was also spotted a mile off, but who cares? It was a fun,
funny book. The premise (royals become commoners) wasn't dealt with
realistically at all, and that made it all the more enjoyable.
