Sir Singlet by Dawn McMillan, illustrated by Ross Kinnaird
My sons are firm fans of McMillan and Kinnaird’s bestselling I Need A New Bum! - and anything featuring “buttcracks”, TBH - so they were keen to help me review the duo’s latest offering.
Sir Singlet is the tale of a knight who hides a shocking secret beneath his immaculately armoured exterior: saggy singlets... sad stockings… and droopy knickers!
So he starts to sew, creating colourful undergarments, featuring the fearsome faces of dragons and vultures. When the King suddenly declares war, Sir Singlet steams in sporting his new range of “Knightwear”. Will his sartorial style give them the edge in the battle?
McMillan’s lively, rhyming text is accompanied by Kinnaird’s quirky cartoons that always go for extra gags. It got the thumbs up from my two.
