Burlington and his friend Marmaduke are invited to Buckingham Palace to watch Changing of the Guards by Hamish, a penguin in the Scots Guards.

Burlington’s morning turns into a real adventure when Duchess introduces her new friends to The Queen who invites the pair for a cup of Earl Grey tea and carrot cake. In the excitement Burlington and Marmaduke have forgotten all about Hamish who is frantically looking for them. Happily they are soon reunited and make their way to St. James’s Palace where Hamish has invited Burlington and his friends to lunch to end the perfect day…

Burlington comes to life through the pen of Madeleine Hall. Hand illustrated by the author, and with a delightfully arch sense of humour the series charts the somewhat haphazard – and even a little bumbling – exploits of the quintessential British bear from Mayfair to the City to the Scottish Highlands and back to meet The Queen. Suitable from ages four to adulthood, the books are written to pique the curiosity of the explorative young reader and open up a highly individual world of words.
Madeleine started her career at Buckingham Palace working for the Equerry to The Queen where she worked for a number of years before moving to the auction house, Sotheby’s in Bond Street. She worked for the Head of Old Master Paintings for eight years where she swapped military engagements for the artistry of Canaletto to Raphael!
