This is a book that needs to come with a warning. If you’re reading to a young audience, there is a slight chance that when you announce the title, “What colour are your knickers?” you might be flashed by members of your audience who really want to answer your question. (This has happened to one librarian I know!)
Don’t be put off, this is a great simple story to read even the youngest audience. Each animal in turn is asked about the colour of their knickers. The words are simple, but the concept is clever as each animal’s name rhymes with the colour of their knickers. The smarties in your audience will pick this up quickly and start yelling colours at you.
The final animal is a cutie, don’t forget to look incredibly embarrassed by this page.
