Author(s): Clementine Beauvais
Anna and Holly Burnbright, together with their friend Prince Pepino, are trying to earn enough money to go on the intergalactic holiday of a lifetime. What they need is a holiday job. So when a tall, elegantly dressed lady called Mademoiselle Malypense tells them she needs help to organise the Francian Royal Wedding, they jump at the chance. She's promised to pay handsomely! The children are whisked away to begin the preparations, but it's not long before Holly smells a rat. Why does Mademoiselle Malypense insist they complete their tasks in secret? And isn't there something odd about a garlic-flavoured wedding cake? Could there be more to this royal couple's wedding day than meets the eye? The first in this series, The Royal Babysitters, was shortlisted for the Sainsbury's Children's Book Award. This second adventure is packed with jokes, adventures and illustrations with more exuberance than Judy Moody and Darcy Burdock put together.

The Queen and King of Britland hired Clementine Beauvais to write down these quite thrilling royal adventures, because 1) she didn't mind being paid in chocolate mints and 2) Prince Pepino had rather enjoyed the Sesame Seade Mysteries, her previous children's books. Clementine is of Francian origin, but has no noble blood whatsoever. The manuscript was illuminated by Becka Moor, who lives in the windy north of Britland. To ensure perfect accuracy in the pictures, the King provided royal underpants as models, and Charlotte the spider posed several times.
