Royal baby: Bloomsbury quick off the mark with Shhh! Don’t Wake the Royal Baby

If you haven’t heard (and where have you been?) the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a boy yesterday. The third in line to throne, who doesn’t have a name yet so is going by his title of Prince Cambridge, was eagerly anticipated by everyone, including the book trade.

While there’ll be plenty of books coming out soon, I think the first to hit the shelves is Bloomsbury’s Shhh! Don’t Wake the Royal Baby, which I know they’ve been working on ever since Kate’s pregnancy was announced.

The book, written by Martha Mumford, is described as a “funny, tongue-in-cheek picture book about the impact of the newborn on the royal palace”.

I’m told it features all the royals (the Queen is pictured parachuting on the front), and I hear it deals with the age old problem of trying to make a baby stop crying/go to sleep. It’s got some cute illustrations by Ada Grey.

So if you’re a big royal baby fan, this might be a purchase you want to make for your own child!

Let me know if you see any other royal baby books out there.
