‘The Queen’s Knickers’ and ‘Elizabeth the Jubilee Fairy’

For younger children

The Queen’s Knickers

By Nicholas Allan

TheQueensKnickersAge: 3+

Republished to tie in with the Queen’s Jubilee, The Queen’s Knickers provides a funny, warm and irreverent look at what might be going on under the queen’s usual wardrobe.

Just what kinds of knickers might the Queen be wearing when she carries out her royal duties? In particular, a little girl wonders what knickers Her Majesty will choose to wear when she visits the school? Will they be her ‘at home’ knickers – adorned with corgis – or her ‘garden party’ knickers, or perhaps her woolly Balmoral ones…?

Look out for lost of cheeky humour, and some very special queenly knickers!

For older children

Elizabeth the Jubilee Fairy

Daisy Meadows

ElizabethJubileeFairyAge: 6+

The Rainbow Magic series has introduced this special story as part of this month’s celebrations for the Queen’s Jubilee!

Elizabeth the Jubilee Fairy is in charge of making every jubilee perfect! But when Jack Frost steals Elizabeth’s Diamond Sceptre, both fairy and human celebrations are headed for catastrophe.

It will take two special human girls, Kirsty and Rachel, all their luck and courage to track down the sceptre and get the Jubilee celebrations back on track.

The Rainbow Magic series has plenty of appeal with their adventure, magic worlds and challenges – but the Jubilee Fairy will also bring a touch of magic to celebrations this month!
