A feisty young girl named Ruby, a girl who embraces life with much enthusiasm but doesn't have much in the way of table manners or grace, receives an invitation for Sunday Tea with the queen. Will Ruby be able to learn how to mind her manners and impress the queen? Or will Sunday Tea turn into a Sunday disaster? Color illustrations accompany the text of this easy reader book, which was written by an author who knows a thing or two about having team with the queen: Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York.
That Ruby! Wherever she goes, table cloths accidentally pull dishes to the floor, flowers get trampled and spaghetti somehow end up in her hair. You can't take Ruby anywhere! One sunny morning, the postman brings Ruby an amazing invitation to have tea with -- the Queen! Ruby had better polish her manners and quickly. Will Ruby really be ready in time?
Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and Robin Preiss Glasser know a thing or two about the importance of manners and poise and being ladylike. In Tea For Ruby, they have created the irrepressible Ruby, whose antics and foibles with touch readers' hearts as she tries her very best to do things correctly. In the end, she knows she is loved for who she is, and that she will always be a princess, royal or not!
