An hilarious new tale about following your heart, from the authors of international bestseller I Need a New Bum!, is out now.
Zany rhymes and crazy illustrations have become the staple diet for fans of Thames author Dawn McMillan and Birkenhead illustrator Ross Kinnaird.
Their newest collaboration, Sir Singlet, continues in that funny vein with its colourfully illustrated story of a knight who can’t stand the sloppy underwear he wears under his armour.
Narrated by his nephew, the story celebrates special talents:
Sir Singlet is clever with needle and thread.
See all the cushions he’s made for his bed?
Sir Singlet’s solution to his problem is to design his own line of comfortable, and colourful ‘knightwear’. But before he can launch the product, the king gets in the way by declaring war.
Wearing his new undergarments, Sir Singlet wins the battle, not using hand-to-hand combat — but by scaring his enemies away when he displays his wonderful wearable creations!
The king is so pleased that he … well, you’ll have to read the story to find out how it all ends up.
