Those of you who are new to More Cowbell might have missed The Undie Chronicles. The regular posse here knows: When the Undie-verse speaks, we will always listen.
Who’d have ever thought we’d get into the TWENTIES in this series? Not me. I had no idea when this began that there were so many hilarious undie-based topics to discuss.
Move over Captain Underpants…now we have The Underpants Wars.
I opened up my daughter’s Scholastic Books catalog over the weekend, and what do I see on page 5, but this hilarity?
And it’s on SALE. You know I had to skedaddle to Amazon to check this out.
Underpants nirvana for the next generation?! I am so buying this “Silly Underpants Pack.” After browsing through the Underpants Books series, I’m ready to build a shrine to Claire Freedman and Ben Cort.
Check out these titles:
- Pirates Love Underpants (Jul 17, 2014)
Aliens Love Underpants (2013)
Aliens in Underpants Save the World (Mar 6, 2012)
Aliens Love Panta Claus (Oct 27, 2011)
Dinosaurs Love Underpants (Dec 29, 2009)
Really, who doesn’t love underpants?? These books have been translated into everything from Spanish to Welsh. It’s an international phenomenon!
And no wonder…these books chronicle The Underpants Wars, and have rhymes like these:
“When T. rex saw man’s undies,
He roared with deafening rants.
I don’t want to eat you up.
I want your underpants.”
These are classics in the making.
The book description:
The mystery of dinosaur extinction is solved! Scientists have plenty of theories about why dinosaurs are extinct, but the UK’s bestselling author/illustrator team of Claire Freedman and Ben Cort knows the real answer: The dinos were wiped out in an Underpants War! This wacky celebration of underpants is perfect for reading aloud, and the hilarious antics of T. rex and the gang are endlessly entertaining. Featuring fun, vibrant art and short, rhyming text, Dinosaurs Love Underpants is a prehistoric pleasure parents and kids will want to read again and again.
Jess Witkins, “Dinosaurs Love Underpants” is no “Taken by the T-Rex.” This here is some clean Undie Fun (i.e. You can open the package without squinching your eyes closed like you had to with that other book).
I can’t wait for my “Silly Pack” to arrive! I’ll keep you posted on whether or not they make me laugh my pants off. At the very least, they’ll get good play here at the blog. 🙂
Had you already heard of these books? Do you think they’ll help me build Undie Love in the next generation? What titles do you suggest for these authors as they expand their series. Enquiring minds always love to ponder these things here at More Cowbell!
