Have you had a chance to read Creepy Carrots? The picture book Creepy Pair of Underwear was written by the same author, Aaron Reynolds. They are both refreshingly original stories that are entertaining for children and adults (aka- a book that will not make you groan when your child asks you to read it for the tenth time).
Not too Creepy…
Don’t let the title worry you. Creepy Pair of Underwear is my 3-year-old nephew’s favorite book. If you think your child can handle the picture on the cover, he should be okay. (if your little one is super sensitive, just pre-read to make sure).
The artwork is adorable. Peter Brown did a great job. His characters’ facial expressions bring the book to life. Most of the illustrations are in black and white, spotlighting the green “glowing” creepy underwear.
The plot of Creepy Pair of Underwear-
The main character is Jasper Rabbit. He needs new underwear. Jasper’s mom wants to buy him boring, white underpants, but Jasper spots the glowing, creepy underwear. He is able to convince his mom to let him get one pair.
After he gets home and starts wearing his creepy underwear, he starts to wonder if he made the right decision…
I don’t want to spoil the book, so I will stop there. If you haven’t read it yet, get your hands on a copy and check it out. It is a funny story about overcoming fears.
