|Summary, etc.:||Underwear can be practical, it can be lucky, it can be just plain bizarre. And just one mention of it can make you giggle or blush. But if you really want to laugh out loud, take a step back in time and check out what people in past centuries used to cover up "down there". With uproarious illustrations this book sets out to uncover the truth behind underwear.|

Gr 2-5-This brief picture-book overview sports an energetic writing style and humorous artwork. Swain packs a lot of detail into the text as she quickly and chronologically progresses through a discussion of different types of underwear throughout the ages and how it has accommodated people's lifestyles. Children will find a multitude of interesting historical tidbits: knights wore padded undergarments; women's stockings were made from the first synthetic fabric, nylon, for the first time during World War II. The author also mentions diapers, the recycling and conversion of underwear into cloth for other uses, and research into improvements. The winsome, imaginative illustrations vary in size and are rendered in watercolor over ink. A chronology adds some details not found within the main text. A fun selection for booktalking and a good addition to collections on clothing.-Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
