Picture book cover with little boy with his hands in the air. The title is I Made These Ants Some Underpants by Derick Wilder and K-Fai Steele.

I MADE THESE ANTS SOME UNDERPANTS by Derick Wilder & K-Kai Steele. After receiving new underpants, the main character sets out to make underpants for everyone else around. I found his choices hilarious. Ants, a pirate, a snake (hahaha- the shape of the snake’s underpants is super funny), a piggy bank, a race car… the list is pretty extensive, unexpected, and funny. Great rhymes. It made me laugh a lot.
