It'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...?

Both children and adults will love this very special and endearing insight into a child's imagination, from the best-selling author-illustrator of Father Christmas Needs A Wee and Jesus' Christmas Party.

Recently, the Queen visited a nursery in Norfolk and enjoyed a display based on the book:

"...just to make it special, there was one element that was not quite so traditional: pants. These were not just any pants, either. They were the Queen's Knickers, and at Dersingham Infant and Nursery School, in Norfolk, they were put on special display in honour of their royal visitor" ~ Valentine Low, The Times

A book about pants! Are mine the only ones who think pants are amusing?
Leo and Georgie both love this book and Georgie is still young enough to believe that the queen does actually have all of these types of pants!
In all seriousness, it is a fun book and there are opportunities to develop vocabulary (not related to toilets!).

A really lovely funny book which kept my 3 year old entertained and laughing, even though now she wants me to sew a parachute into her knickers! The queen is due to visit a school and a little girl is wondering if she will wear her best knickers to the event. Wonderful illustrations and descriptions, we love it how it's based on our real life queen too complete with corgis! 5*

A little girl imagines all the knickers the Queen owns and wonders what ones she would wear on a visit to her school. My four year old twins find all the talk about knickers hilarious! Very funny and sweet book.
