Debut picture book author, Kara Lebihan and the illustrator behind The Night Pirates and She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain, Deborah Allwright, combine in an amazing slapstick story that’s perfect for reading aloud.
Mrs Vickers’ Knickers is a cheeky and fast-paced romp about a pair of frilly knickers on one hilarious journey.
Mrs Vickers is just pegging out her favourite knickers when – whoosh – they are caught in a gust of wind and fly away. That’s the end of them, thinks Mrs Vickers. But she is wrong. This is just the beginning . . . Mrs Vickers’ Knickers are whisked and whirled on the breeze; on and on they sail, over the building site, through the town (where they cause traffic chaos) and round and round the rollercoaster! Will Mrs Vickers’ ever be united with her favourite pair of frilly pink knickers?
Perfect for kids aged 3+ and everyone who loved The Queen's Knickers and Queen Victoria's Knickers.
Kara Lebihan qualified as a primary school teacher in 1992 and embarked on a teaching career which has taken her overseas to Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney. A love of sharing books and stories with children led her to write her own story. Mrs Vickers’ Knickers is Kara’s debut picture book.
Deborah Allwright has made a dramatic impact on the picture book scene since the publication of The Night Pirates. After the hugely successful She'll be Coming Round the Mountain and the critically acclaimed Don't Read this Book! Deborah is one of Egmont's most celebrated and successful illustrators. She works in a studio in Islington, stopping only to attend designer clothes sales, and to do a spot of DJing at music festivals.
