'My name is Queen Delilah and I come from a land far, far away. Really I do. But my mother says, "Really you don't, Delilah darling."' This time Delilah is at school and causing mayhem wherever she goes. From her hilarious antics in the playground to her favourite ways of counting, she really is quite extraordinary! In the land where she comes from, you can wear sparkly shoes and a golden crown and giroofs and rhinoceroos come to assembly. Delilah's teacher doesn't believe her, but never mind. Delilah knows that she's the queen and she's the top of the class ...All together now, Long Live Queen Delilah!
