The Queen's Knickers
BeschreibungIt's a busy year for the Queen - she has lots of important events to attend. Meanwhile, a little girl is wondering what knickers. Her Majesty will choose to wear on a school visit! Will they be her at home knickers - adorned with corgis - or her 'garden party' knickers, or perhaps her woolly Balmoral ones...?

Pressestimmen"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 20120429 "This is a knockout ... Affectionate, funny and entirely delightful" Books for Children
