The Lovereading4Kids comment

A brilliantly light hearted celebration of the bare bottie! Human toddlers protest against the wearing of nappies, knickers, pants, boxers, bloomers or briefs. After all, the human babies protest in the jaunty rhyming text whilst the entertaining illustrations which illustrate the dottiness of the concept, animals definitely do not wear smalls!

Synopsis

Bottoms Up! by Jeanne Willis

So funny that it will have children wetting their pants (If they're wearing anyway!), "Bottoms Up!" is a book guaranteed to cause giggles. Our toddler hero is not happy and wants to protest - if animals don't wear pants, then why should we? After all ...Do piglets wear panties? Or puppies or bears? Do fox cubs wear boxers? No, nobody cares! Packed with hilarious animal characters and rollicking, rumbustious rhyme, this is another hit from award-winning author Jeanne Willis.
