CHILDREN Queen Victoria's Knickers

by Jackie French (Author) and Bruce Whatley (Illustrator)

Queen Victoria was Empress of half the world.

She owned palaces and huge armies.

Mighty sultans gave her precious jewels.

But she didn’t have any knickers…

Meet Lizzy, whose family are in the clothing industry. Very few people probably know that Queen Victoria made the wearing of underpants popular. At the beginning of her reign very few women wore them. But Queen Victoria made tartans, perambulators and chloroform fashionable. By the time she died just about every woman in Britain wore underpants like hers!

Explore the truly hilarious story of Her Majesty’s underwear as told by award-winning duo Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.

Our comments: an entertaining book, perhaps a little light on historical accuracy.
