Cute story about an apparent alien obsession with human underwear. The illustrations are very eye catching and the story has little jokes for adults as well - check out the "descriptions" on the underwear monuments.

SUMMARY: This is the first book in the Love Underpants series. Aliens love underpants, but they don't have any on their planet so they must come to Earth in order to steal some. While here, they have a romping good time playing games with underpants and just being downright silly with them. The book ends with the warning that you should check your underpants before putting them on ..."in case an alien still lurks inside, unseen!"

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations are my favorite part of the book. They are brightly colored with lots of humorous and fun details. I enjoyed the lovely variety of underwear in all shapes, colors and sizes!

THE GOOD: This is a cute concept for a silly book about underwear and aliens. What kiddo doesn't love reading about underwear?
THE NOT AS GOOD: I read these in backwords order which means I have gotten to the first book in the series last. Many people love this one the most. I, however, did not. Although the pictures were great fun, I couldn't get past the words which felt thrown together. Every single one of the books in this series has weak wording. The rhyming is forced and the vocabulary is lacking in creativity and imagination. Also, the ending is pretty creepy for a little kid's book. It may leave some kids very worried about putting on their underwear because of what may be lurking inside.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Advertised for ages 4-7
