Vegetables in Underwear

Vegetables are usually not funny. Underpants often are. Vegetables in underwear? Guaranteed preschool hilarity. A head of broccoli gets things started on the copyright and dedication pages with a striptease down to his red skivvies. A similarly stripped-down text follows a parade of produce in bright underthings, demonstrating opposite concepts on each double-page spread. Theres big underwear and little underwear, / dirty underwear and clean underwear... / underwear for boys and underwear for girls. Chapmans colorful characters are comical on their own: wearing nothing but underpants and a smile, the veggies feature black-dot eyes and stick-figure arms and legs. The lively contrast between each vegetables rich hue and its vibrantly toned underwear adds energy to the minimalist compositions. Endpapers helpfully provide labels for the whole cast, with everyone fully clothed in the front and sporting only their briefs in the back. This silly overview of undergarments and vegetables winds down with a twist (of the knickers) that kids whove recently graduated from diapers will especially relish (sorry, babies). Expect second, third, and more helpings of this scantily clad harvest. kitty flynn (c) Copyright 2015. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Preschool-This charmingly absurd story delivers exactly what its title promises: an array of cheerful vegetables parading around in brightly colored undies. It sets up numerous oppositional relationships (clean/dirty, big/little, funny/serious) and includes a trio of sad baby vegetables who are too little to wear underwear. © Copyright 2017.

Kirkus Reviews

A survey of underwear and opposites is leavened (as if talk of underwear needs to be made funnier) by anthropomorphized veggies. There's not much story here, though for kids who giggle at the merest mention of unmentionables, that won't be an issue. Basically, a stalk of broccoli sheds his shirt and shorts on the copyright and dedication pages and then launches into a spiel about underwear. "I wear underwear! / You wear underwear! // // There's big underwear / and little underwear." Underwear can also be dirty or clean, old or new, serious or funny, for boys or for girls, and for every day of the week. But though the colors and patterns may vary, apparently underwear cannot be boxers, and sadly, there's no underwear for babies, who wear diapers. Different colors highlight opposites in the all-caps text, though not all these words indicate opposites, per sethe days of the week are in rainbow hues. Chapman's digital artwork features brightly colored veggie characters with stick arms and legs against white backgrounds. Simple props provide context (like the flies around the hamper), while a red, dashed line indicates movement. Front endpapers introduce the clothes-wearing veggies, while closing endpapers show them in their underwear (or not, as is the case for Pea). Those who are making the transition from diapers are sure to laugh, though it doesn't really stand out from the other books in the underwear drawer.

BookList Review

Vegetables in Underwear

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

The glories of underwear are celebrated in this humorous book, which successfully depicts a child's desire to transition from diapers with bold, comical illustrations. The book's narrator is a brief-clad stalk of broccoli who points out the universal nature of underwear in terms of who wears it (everyone except babies); when you wear it (Monday through Sunday); what types are worn (serious versus funny); and where you wear it (anywhere!). The ubiquity of underwear gets a workout in the vigorous activities of the vegetables, who never do anything without their undies even the streaking pea gleefully waves his underwear over his head. The endpapers bookend the story with opposing representations of the vegetables. At the front, they are fully clothed and appear uncomfortable. On the back pages, they are all stripped down to their skivvies and much happier with the situation. The message is clear no need to be shy about what's underneath; love your underwear. It separates the big kids from the babies and is a comfy fact of life.--Dean, Kara Copyright 2015 Booklist
