A charming, hilariously funny and genuinely affectionate picture book from the acclaimed author-illustrator of Jesus' Christmas Party.
A little girl is looking forward to the Queen's visit to her school -- and wonders what knickers Her Majesty will choose to wear! Will they be her 'at home' knickers - adorned with corgis -- or her garden party knickers, or perhaps her woolly Balmoral ones? Whichever choices from the Official HM Knicker Guide the Queen decides upon, the girl is determined that the royal visitor will feel at home at her school.
Both children and adults will love this very special and endearing insight into a child's imagination.

"The Queen is not a subject beyond humour; a welcome, gold-embossed reissue of Nicholas Allan's picture book The Queen's Knickers takes a cheerily irreverent look at royals" (Julia Eccleshare Guardian)
"Humourous, entertaining and a little bit naughty, this classic has been revived with a eye-catching new cover for the Jubilee, the story inside is as brilliant as it has always been . . . Pairing a tongue-in-cheek story of how the Queen chooses her undergarments, with charming and warming illustrations, creates a book to be loved by children of all ages" ( Book Keepers)
"A jolly story . . . This one made my four-year-old son hoot with laughter" (Lorna Bradbury Daily Telegraph)
"This new edition will hopefully bring the book to a whole new audience of knicker-making monarchists" ( Independent)
