Another hilarious book from this well-known author and illustrator team, suitable for early learners with a special message about making the most of your hidden talents and being a multi-dimensional person.
The latest collaboration from author Dawn McMillan and illustrator Ross Kinnaird Sir Singlet brings their zany rhymes and illustrations to a colourful story of a knight who can’t stand the sloppy underwear he wears under his armour.
Narrated by his nephew, Sir Singlet 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!
