Out of stock



Set in a run-down hotel, similar to Wes Andersen’s Grand Budapest Hotel, this story is told from the perspective of hotel owner’s son, Gabriel. Despite the state of the hotel, Gabriel and his parents look after the old and eccentric residents very well, including Mrs Kettle who believes she is a former queen in exile from Kettlonia. As the hotel crumbles around them, the family and residents realise it’s time to say goodbye. Until they receive the surprise of their life: Mrs Kettle really is a queen and her country has been freed – her people are asking her to come back home! Gabriel, his parents and the Herring residents build the hotel afresh next to Mrs Kettle’s palace and they all live happily ever after in Kettlonia.
