Format: Paperback
Fantastic fun rhyming book for toddlers, the rhythm of words flows easily and is a wonderful introduction to rhyme for young children. Guaranteed to be a hit, with hilarious illustrations, cute aliens and all kinds of pants being used as slides, flags, hats. Not sure who enjoys it more-my son or me!

What is there not to like about a weird kids book about aliens and underpants? It's got funny, rhythmic sentenses and I can see why it was voted the best book of Richard and Judy's 2 - 6 year-old's collection. It really is a must have for a child you know and care about!
Thanks for reading.

Basically this book can be summed up as "Aliens come to earth and play with underpants, then they leave." We get a nice rhyming story and glorious pictures of Alien's playing with smalls. My 4 year old boy giggles the whole way through the story as he thinks it's very funny. It's good, it's fun, the story is nice, the pictures are great. 10/10

It may not be mind-enhancing literature but my boys (3 & 5) love to laugh about underwear and this combination of pants and silly creatures from outer-space is guaranteed to hit the spot. In smooth rhyming text, aliens fly down to earth and steal knickers from washing-lines having some sport along the way.
Each double page is a great big picture and one short verse of text such as: "They like them red, they like the green, or orange like satsumas.
But best of all they love the sight of Granny's spotted bloomers."
The humour is bright and bold (for the 2-5s) with a mention of Mum's pink frilly knickers, aliens wearing pants on their heads and other foolish or funny things.
The illustrations are a perfect accompaniment, also bright and bold, with lots of interesting things to point out - colourful aliens of all shapes and sizes, details such as a UFO "hotpants" bumper sticker, an alien hiding in an underwear drawer and so on. There are also many different designs of pants and knickers on a final double page after the story is concluded, and it's surprising how long my three-year old will spend choosing a colour and pattern for every friend and family member. And he thinks it is very funny to choose daisy pants for his brother and pirate pants for Grandad....
Other than this last page loitering, however, `Aliens Love Underpants' is a simple quick read and one that all preschool children will enjoy. And if you find underwear to be an inspiring topic for your little one, then try Andreae & Sharratt's Pants (and the sequel "More Pants". No, I'm not joking) for the same age group which is less wordy, with strong rhythm and rhyme, varied and inspiring pictures, and it endures the text of time.

Hilarious story about aliens coming down to earth to steal everyone's fanciest and best from washing lines. Excellent rhyming story which had me and the sock-biter in stitches. Watch out for the detail in the underwear in the illustrations. Well put together package which came top in the recent Richard and Judy programme on kids reading on Channel 4.

Purchased this for class of 3-5 yr olds to link in with topic on Outer Space. The children love the title and laughed from the start. It's great to be able to introduce sometimes taboo subjects like "pants" to little ones in such a light hearted way. We had great discussions about which of the pants pictured they thought our staff members might be wearing. Their answers were hilarious. Weeks after we read it the children are still quoting from it and recalling what the aliens were doing!

How do I love underpants? Let me count the ways.

There's no story here, as such. Aliens love underpants and they like to steal them or borrow them and play with them in inventive ways. But, the illustrations are engaging and fun, the rhymes are clever, and there are loads and loads of every kind of underpants.

This is a great choice for a light and silly read, with no message, no agenda, and no irony. There's always room for funny and silly, and that's exactly what this delivers.

This book is fantastic for a fun simple bedtime read. I got it by default- buy 3 get one free deal and I couldn't be happier (this was before it's success). We pick out each family members underpants from the picture at the front and the giggles start before the story has started. A must have!
