    1. One of my favourite books as a kid was The Homemade Dragon, which is a series of bizarre fairy tales about the clueless denizens of Incrediblania. Although I went on to read and like Branestawm, I loved the potty royals first and foremost, and assumed it had been a one off.So imagine my surprise when, aged 28, I discovered this. I can only assume it came first, as Incrediblania makes a cameo, albeit spelt differently and with a different King and Queen. Though uncomfortably racist in parts (you [...]


    2. I remembered this book earlier when I finished reading The Light Princess by George Macdonald. This is a children's book for older children and it's just really silly. For example the title story is about a queen whose teapot leaks and she offers half the kingdom for one that doesn't, which is obviously a disaster, so the court wizard makes them all leak, etc. I am not sure about this version but the one I had contained some nice drawings of the characters. This was a book I read quite a few tim [...]


    3. Branestawm-esque slapstick and verbal gymnastics, but this time the stories tightly focused variations on a theme: the king and the queen and the primeminister. Occasionally there is a magician, or a dragon but mostly there are other visiting monarchs. This book not only provided sound guidance for our own Royal Family, but must have kept my generation from Republicanism too. Sir Norman Hunter?


    4. I remembered The Dribblesome Teapots from childhood, which is the first story, in this collection of ten short stories for children. It was published in 1969, but originated from stories published in 1938. As a result, the language is very formal old English and the stories are rather over exaggerated and pantomime like, but highly entertaining. All relate to royalty & kingdoms and the bizarre challenges one has as a queen or queen!!! A lovely step back in time.
