The Queen visits her country in this one! This one has more to spot than the first.

Once again the Queen has lost some of her apparel, thus beginning another race around England and its landmarks. This time, the thief is not the wind, but rather a swan decked out in jail stripes and a thief's mask. When it lifts her handbag, the Queen and her korgi immediately hop into a red sports car, with the police force following close behind. The Queen's butler also joins the race. From there, they switch from vehicle to vehicle in order to keep up with the fast-flying swan. While the last book featured the Queen in blue, and her guards in red, the sequel reverses the colour scheme; the Queen wears red, and the police force are in blue. The detailed depictions of the landmarks are still done primarily in blue. There is much to look at and laugh at in this silly scenario, but the book also offers a glimpse at some of England's cultural sites; a note in the back gives a bit of detail about what they are. To end things off, Antony gives a funny nod to his previous book the Queen's Hat, so fans of the first will definitely want to read the second.
