A little girl's dream of glory, with enchanting full-color pictures

If I were queen of the whole wide world, I'd have one hundred lollipops a day and never have to share. But sometimes I'd let my little brother have a lick or two". So begins a small girl's glorious fantasy of being queen of the world. She'd ride the scariest roller coaster at the fair one hundred times. But she'd get off once in a while to keep her little brother company on the flying elephants. Or, since she could fly just by spreading her arms, she'd sometimes take him on her back. She'd even let him sit near her and pretend to be a king. This charming, childlike text, illustrated with delightful humor by a well-loved artist, speaks directly to any young child with a sibling -- and to anyone who has dreams of glory!
