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.
"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)

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.
