Fresh Fiction Review

The Bandit Queen
Natalia O'Hara

Reviewed by Clare O'Beara
Posted February 11, 2019

Young Adult Adventure

From the author and illustrator of Hortense And The Shadow comes another fairytale for young readers who enjoy excitement. In THE BANDIT QUEEN we can laugh at the antics of the bandits in the forest, robbing and raiding, but really, this is no way to bring up a child. And having raided an orphanage and mistakenly stolen a child among other items, this is exactly what the bandits try to do.

The little girl who has such an eventful life makes her own decisions at last. Like the Hortense tale which can show us how to live with an annoying little sister, maybe the young queen's character shows us how to handle an obstreperous group of friends who just won't stop misbehaving.

The colourful pages illustrated by Lauren O'Hara will make anyone laugh and the writing by Natalia O'Hara is not shown in big letters, so kids won't feel this is too obviously an early reader book. A family or class will love the tale of THE BANDIT QUEEN.

"O Bandit Queen!" the bandits cried. "Little horror! Poison weed! We'll give you everything a queen could ever need..." The bandits give their queen treasure, tigers, mischief and mayhem. But sometimes a little girl needs something more... A book about finding family in unexpected places, from the creators of Hortense and the Shadow.
