Jack and the Baked Beanstalk by Colin Stimpson

Colin Stimpson sets his version of Jack and the Beanstalk in a futuristic 1950s America, with skyscrapers surrounding the flyover under which Jack and his mother run a café, and a vintage framing to the illustrations. When the flyover threatens their café, Jack's mother sends him to buy the best coffee beans to attract new customers, but he buys baked beans instead. His mother throws them out, yet after climbing the resulting beanstalk, he finds a giant whose cooking skills save the business. A delightful, comic twist on a traditional tale.

Little Elizabeth: The Young Princess Who Became Queen by Valerie Wilding

The incredible true story of a young and brilliant Princess who grew up to become our Queen Elizabeth, the longest-reigning monarch.

Little People, Big Dreams: King Charles

From the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of King Charles.
 
Little Charles always knew that, one day, he would have a big job to do. As the son of Queen Elizabeth II, he was a prince, and in the future, he was to inherit the throne of the United Kingdom.

As a young man, he developed a passion for one cause; the environment. Charles recognised that plastics and pollutants were causing harm to Earth, and as the Prince of Wales, he spent all his efforts championing climate justice and sustainability.
