A beautifully illustrated and thought-provoking story that encourages us all to sit up and take notice. Nobody notices the queen on the corner. Nobody, that is . . . except one young girl. Through her eyes, the woman who dwells in the abandoned plot is a warrior queen, with many battles fought and won. When, one day, danger comes to the street and the queen on the corner sounds the alarm, the little girl must find a way to thank her. Can she bring the community together to turn the queen's corner into a home? A Love Reading for Schools Book of the Month. Ezra Jack Keats Illustration Award Nomination. Klaus Flugge Prize Longlist. “This hopeful tale uses a youthful view of the world to imagine what our society could be like if all people and their experiences were valued and respected. Sweet and thought-provoking”—Kirkus Reviews
