For Young Readers ‘His Royal Dogness’ is Fun For Young Royal Watchers “His Royal Dogness, Guy the Beagle” by Guy the Beagle with Michael Brumm and Camille March, illustrated by EG Keller; © 2018, Simon & Schuster; 48 pages ——— BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER Wow, you’re getting so big! Your hair is really growing out. You’re getting to be such a good artist. You’re so much like your Mama. Everything changes, including you, and in the new book “His Royal Dogness, Guy the Beagle” by Guy the Beagle, Michael Brumm and Camille March, illustrated by EG Keller, it may be a change fit for a prince! Not long ago, in the backwoods of Kentucky, Guy the Beagle was born.

But when thinking about moving to Great Britain, Guy started to worry. What if the Royal Corgis were mean? What if he hated Kensington Palace? What if The Queen didn’t like him? He couldn’t worry for long; there was a lot to do and so much to learn in London, squirrels to find, and a whole new language to speak. Guy was happy to see that the Royal Corgis were nice, if not a little uppity. He enjoyed wedding preparations and he learned how to get out of taking blame for making messes. He was “determined to be the perfect royal dog” for everyone at Kensington Palace, but that was going to take a lot of change. Guy didn’t want to ruin the wedding, but being a good boy was hard. What was going to happen? Then, just before the ceremony, Queen Elizabeth came outside, fretting. Meghan needed a “sprig of myrtle” for her wedding bouquet. It was tradition, On Dec. 4, the South Dakota State Library made it easier for residents to access the 54 library-proand the Queen couldn’t vided electronic resources find any.
