Product Description

Amazon Review

Based on the universal truth that all children (and quite a few adults) find pants hysterically amusing, Pants by Purple Ronnie creator Giles Andreae is an unashamedly silly celebration of "smalls" big and small.

Written in the style of a playground rhyme, Pants is illustrated by prolific children's illustrator Nick Sharratt in his trademark bold, colourful style. Andreae and Sharratt's imaginations have evidently run wild with the collection on offer here, including "lighting up at night pants" and "special pants for driving the car", modelled by animal characters as well as people. Frilly, jewel-encrusted, baggy, psychedelic, every conceivable type of pants is here.

Pants is a frivolous, fun read suitable for children aged two upwards.--Alison Drury --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

"A big, bold picture book that waves the flag for the humble pant" (Guardian)

"Perfect giggle aloud picture book with silly rhymes and bright pictures of pants of all kinds. Great fun" (Sunday Mirror)

"Enormous fun" (TES)

"An amusing picture book celebration of underwear big and small, that will make children everywhere laugh their socks off. The bright, bold illustrations complement the witty text perfectly" (Waterstones Books Quarterly)

"For pure, bright, toddler delight, grab a copy of Pants . . . This is the kind of wild, wacky, mischievous picture book that we expect from this winning duo. Do not underestimate toddler power; you will be inventing a tune to the rhythmic beat of the text and singing this book again and again every night" (Bookseller)

I want to add my own testimonial to the collected talent of Andreae, Sharratt and Lenny Henry. The poetry is simple but surreally hilarious ("Groovy pants, funky pants, cheeky little monkey pants, pants you can wear if you're 10 feet tall") and totally infectious (I catch myself singing it at odd moments around the house!). It makes a real change from moralistic, worthy, educational or sickly sweet children's stories. Let's face it, little people love being silly and this book is silly in spades!

The illustrations are colourful and zany. But, best of all, is the CD that comes with this edition. Lenny Henry sings the poem in a whole range of styles - rock, reggae, rap, disco, folk. He is hysterical. When I listen to the CD with my son we are torn between dancing round the room or trying to turn the pages and keep up with the song. Often we listen to it through a few times so we can do both.

The book and CD together are fabulous value for money. I have bought several copies for friends and heartily recommend to everyone with a small child.

This is a bright and cheerful book with rhyming text and a good rhythm. Every page shows new types of pants: groovy pants, funky pants, cheeky little monkey pants and there's pants for being lazy, pants to pick a daisy, to name but a few. Plus at the end there's a page packed with all the pants from the whole book where my children like to spend a lot of time choosing who might wear each pair. I bought it for my daughter when she was about two and a half and only recently wearing big girls pants, and now two years on she still loves it as does her 2 year old brother. It's unashamedly silly, stands out from the norm, and is thoroughly good fun. Fantastic!

A fantastically funny little book! I originally borrowed this book from the library for my two year old and ended up returning for it so many times that I eventually had to buy a copy. This book is so easy to read with flowing rhyming text which trips off the tongue. My little daughter - now three years old loves it so much she can recite the whole book. A great party piece!

My mum and I fell about laughing at this hilarious book aimed at children. The illustrations are brilliant, and the book is so much fun. It lists different types of pants. Big pants, small pants, big frilly pig pants, stripey pants, hairy pants.. and so it goes on. Proving that the subject of pants is funny to all age groups. I bought this book for my friends 5 year old boy. It had my friend and I crying with laughter,and him doubled over in hysterics.We must have named every type of pants in the world, it was a great way to spend a Sunday morning.

My 2 year old son loves this book. The illustrations are bright and colourful with fab illustrations of lots of different types of pants. The rhyming nature of the tale makes it flow quickly and will make any toddler with their toilet humour laugh with delight especially at the no pants at all bit!

My Reception class have worn through 3 copies of this over the past 5 years it is thumbed through that much! Perfect for children age 2-6, humorous with a hint of naughtiness that appeals so much to this age group (pants on your head when you've gone crazy, little baby nappy pants, no pants at all etc) without being vulgar which I sadly find the sequel to this book (farty pants etc). Was so pleased I picked that one up in a bookstore and read through it before purchasing as I would not have been happy to have that in my classroom. This original version though is utterly brilliant and never fails to raise a smile.

We bought this book for our son in our second attempt at potty training him. He loved the wonderful pictures and was excited about wearing pants from then on. He talks about pants all the time now and enjoys reading it over and over again. Our 1 year old also loves the fabulous illustrations and wants to look at the pictures also. A great aid for anyone attempting to potty train a less than cooperative toddler.
