Editorial Reviews

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

Format: Paperback
This is a simple story and would suit 4-8 year olds. It is picture book, the text is limited on each page but it is not easy to read, the font used is sans serif and it is a slim type so it is not easy for early readers.

This is obviously meant to be an attempt to ingloriously represent the Queen, fine by me, but I just don't think it is done well. It has its funny moments, the knickers decorated with real holly, the jewel encrusted knickers, but it falls short of being genuinely funny by trying to be too clever.

I didn't like the illustrations much, they are too naive and child-like. I love Helen Oxenbury style illustrations, or Maurice Sendak - those rich full pictures. The whole book feels thin and slightly inadequate.

Its not that bad, but its just not that good either.

Format: Paperback
To really appreciate the humour in this book, you need to know the Queen. While it's a cute story of the queen's underwear, it's also a great way to have fun discussions with your child about the different kinds of underwear there is, and even come up with some ideas of your own. I loved it, my 4yr old loves it and it's often picked as a bedtime story.

Format: Paperback
I saw this book in a dear bookstore in Scotland . I purchased the last two copies and ordered one for myself. It is dear, simpy drawn, and a whimsical treatise on underpants, or knickers, as the Scots call them .It is an Anglophiles silly book that should be on everyone's bed stand. Not just for children, it tickles any person that would pick it up!

It is very clever. Adults liked it and kids will love it -- how could they not like a story about underwear?!?! Cute illustrations. A must have for those who want to bring a little "culture" into their child's life.

I have long adored this book, it is a delight for children age 3 to 8. Irreverant without being disrespectful, it is an hilarious introduction to royal culture.

Jack, age 4 and Gabi, age 6 love this story. We spend many hours decorating paper cut-outs of boy and girl knickers. Who knew?

Sean liked this book because it was about knickers. It was very silly. He wants to give the book 5 stars.
