The Children's Party at the Palace was an event held at Buckingham Palace Garden on 25 June 2006 in honour of the 80th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. The event, which had the theme British children's literature, was a...展开ttended by 2,000 children and 1,000 adults who were chosen through a national ballot. On arrival all guests received a purple hamper with snacks put together by Jamie Oliver. For the occasion, the palace grounds were transformed into scenes from children's books including places like the Hundred Acre Wood and 80 costumed characters and a model of the BFG sitting at a huge piano. The grounds also had an author's corner where authors like J.K. Rowling, Philip Pullman, Eric Hill and Raymond Briggs read from their books and signed autographs. But when the baddies, led by Cruella de Vil, discover that they have not been invited, they steal the Queen's handbag containing her spectacles and the text of her speech; without it, the Queen will not be able to make a speech at the party. Can the goodies find the handbag in time?
