Random House, 2014. ISBN 9780857983701
(Age: 9+) Highly recommended. The Queen of the land has died and there isn't a family member to take her place. The Royal Scrolls say the crown is to be passed on to the Queen's best friend and so our story begins. The Queen's best friend is a dog, Lucy. Lord Runcible is not impressed as he wants to be king. The people of the kingdom think it is a lovely idea but what mischief will Lord Runcible get up to in his quest to be king?
Regal Beagle is an easy to read novel and is highly recommended to readers aged 9+. It is only 121 pages long and the font is a good size so it is great for those starting outing with their first novel. The author describes Lucy's thoughts as if she is a human and it is easy to fall in love with this little dog who has the biggest job in the world.
