Embracing The Underpants War

by Jenny Hansen

Move over Captain Underpants…there’s now The Underpants Wars.

Note: If you’ve never been to More Cowbell, you might be unaware that when the Undie-verse speaks, I will always listen. (That’s why we have The Undie Chronicles.)

I opened up my daughter’s Scholastic Books catalog over the weekend, and what do I see on page 5, but this hilarity?

It's "action-packed" (if you know what I mean...)

It’s “action-packed” (if you know what I mean…)

And it’s on SALE. You know I skedaddled to Amazon to check out this underpants nirvana for the next generation.

I am SO buying this “Silly Underpants Pack.”

In fact, after browsing through the Underpants Books series, I’m ready to build a shrine to the authors, Claire Freedman and Ben Cort.

Check out these titles:

(Really, who doesn’t love underpants?) With translations into languages like Spanish to Welsh, it’s obvious that underpants are a beloved phenomenon world-wide.

And it’s little wonder…these books chronicle The Underpants Wars, and have rhymes like:

“When T. rex saw man’s undies,
He roared with deafening rants.
I don’t want to eat you up.
I want your underpants.”

These are classics in the making.

The book description:

The mystery of dinosaur extinction is solved! Scientists have plenty of theories about why dinosaurs are extinct, but the UK’s bestselling author/illustrator team of Claire Freedman and Ben Cort knows the real answer: The dinos were wiped out in an Underpants War! This wacky celebration of underpants is perfect for reading aloud, and the hilarious antics of T. rex and the gang are endlessly entertaining. Featuring fun, vibrant art and short, rhyming text, Dinosaurs Love Underpants is a prehistoric pleasure parents and kids will want to read again and again.

And “Dinosaurs Love Underpants” is no “Taken by the T-Rex.” This here is some CLEAN Undie Fun (i.e. You can open the package without squinching your eyes closed like you had to with that other book).

I can’t wait for my “Silly Pack” to arrive! I’ll keep you posted on whether or not they make me laugh my pants off.

Had you already heard of these books? Do you think they’ll help me build Undie Love in the next generation? What titles do you suggest for these authors as they expand their series. Continue the discussion at the #SocialIn hashtag on Twitter or SocialInDC on Facebook!
