Mrs Vickers’ Knickers

Publisher: Egmont

Review

Poor Mrs Vickers is pegging up her pretty pink knickers when a gust of wind whisks them up into the sky. Her pink frillies spiral away on the breeze, causing quite a commotion.

They land on a fire-engine’s windscreen, get hooked over the traffic lights, twirl through a classroom, twist over the zoo and even round a rollercoaster. Finally Mrs Vickers’ knickers startle a parachutist who spins down to earth, crashing into Mrs Vickers’ washing-line and sending all her other knickers off on their own adventures.

This amusing tale will delight small children, who will love observing how the pink panties cause pandemonium wherever they go. Deborah Allwright’s cheerfully comical illustrations provide plenty of fun and entertainment.
