Sam, Sebbie and Di-Di-Di: A Day with the Duchess (book 4)
Illustrated by Soefara Jafney
Sam, Sebbie and Di-Di-Di are three siblings who love doing things together. Sam loves princesses and is thrilled that Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, is visiting Singapore. With Kate, Sam’s hamster, the siblings try to meet the princess when she visits Gardens by the Bay. The hamster is a little scared by the crowds and runs off—finding refuge in the Duchess’s bouquet of flowers. Sam, Sebbie and Di-Di-Di follow the princess all over Singapore to try to get Kate back. And when they find Kate, they also have the pleasure of meeting the princess herself!
“I personally love the style of the illustrator Soefara Jafney, and that she has used the clothes that The Duchess actually wore in Singapore for her illustrations. I’m sure you’ll love the book too!”
—Chloe Howard, Royal Central
