It’s the Royal Prince’s first birthday and the Place is in great upheaval once again. There’s a party to plan, guests to invite and presents to buy. Once again Martha Mumford, along with Ada Grey’s fabulous illustrations, has captured the very essence of the special first birthday party beloved of all parents, with wry wit and humour designed to appeal to the little and not so little lovers of an great story and a great birthday party.

The Royal cook has to bake the cake, the Prince’s grandad is making sure the bouncy castle is ordered and the Royal Princes uncle is insisting the music will be the loudest and best yet.

The Prince’s grandma was making sure the royal balloon blower kept up with the enormous amount to balloons that needed to be blown-up for the special day.

On the special day the guests arrived, the presents mounted up and up into a huge pile and the band played the best and loudest music.

But the Prince was not happy: all he did was cry and cry and cry: His parents did not know what to  do but in the nick of time his granny the Queen saved the day with an little help from her friends in the air force and her very special parachute.
