The Lovereading4Kids comment

Ned’s extreme delight in having no clothes on is wickedly captured in this story of a little boy who runs around everywhere with nothing on at all. Young readers will love Ned’s nude prancing and especially lifting the provocatively placed flaps which open up to reveal a series of pretty images acting as coy fig leafs.


Nuddy Ned by Kes Gray

He didn't! He hasn't! He wouldn't! He isn't! Yes, he REALLY is. Ned is running riot - in the nuddy! Skipping down the garden path, cartwheeling along the high street, spinning into the pizzeria - Ned just can't be stopped! I'm Nuddy Ned, I'm Nuddy Ned, jimjams aren't for me!I'm never wearing clothes again, the nuddy life's for me! Can ANYONE convince Ned to put his clothes back on?
