Product Description

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)

Book Description

A sparkling, new edition of the affectionate, funny classic story: the perfect book for every child to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

I first read this book with the children I teach in a Reception Class in a village school. Not only did the children thoroughly enjoy the book, ( it was read on several occasions at storytime) but I then went out to buy it for myself and will be giving it as presents for all my adult friends! Altogether a great read, very humorous and well worth a look.

I read this book to my class of infants (4-7 year olds), and they thought it was wonderful! They especially loved the slightly risque title. There was quite a lot of giggling when they heard it. Anything to do with bottoms always goes down well! A whole story about knickers couldn't fail to appeal. The class was already a big fan of Nicholas Allen...they particularly love "Jesus'Christmas Party". We used it for our Nativity Play, and The Queen's Knickers has joined it on their favourite story list. The illustrations are extremely good and very funny. This book is going in our Story Sack Library where it is sure to be constantly out on loan!

Any mention of the word "knickers" is guaranteed to get small people giggling. This book certainly captured the imagination of my 3 year old, although I think I probably found it even funnier than he did!
This is a charming and beautifully illustrated book - BUY IT!

As other reviewer's have said, this is an absolutely lovely book.
I have been driven to write my first ever Amazon review though, just to let you know that the edition is very SMALL (14cm x 10.5cm; or 5 and a half inches x 4 inches) not all that much bigger than the palm of my hand. It is called a 'mini treasure', so maybe I should have expected that, but I just thought I'd point it out incase you were expecting a full size book, as I was. The contents are brilliant!

A happy, silly, funny book about the Queen's knickers. She has so many different ones for all kinds of occasions. Anything mildly naughty sets the children off into fits of giggles, after all one doesn't normally speak about this subject. Great illustrations. Open up a discussion on children designing their own knickers?

I have only read this to myself and not my daughter yet ..The title tickled me ..I do not live in the UK, so I'm always looking for books that I can read to my daughter with some UK wit and culture.
I thought the story was great .
Can't wait to read it to her...Funny for kids and adults ....Bravo to Nicholas Allan ...Will be buying a lot more of his books
