9780099263562: The Queen's Knickers (Mini Treasure)

Everyone can see the Queen's smart coats and dresses, but what does she wear underneath, particularly for a school visit? Through the eyes of a little girl hoping for a school visit by the Queen, the range of royal underwear is revealed, in all its regal glory—garden party and Christmas speech knickers to the VIP (Very Important Pair) for the opening of Parliament. This is a gently humorous book that will delight children, adults, and knicker-wearers everywhere.

Review:

"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 "This is a knockout ... Affectionate, funny and entirely delightful" Books for Children
