Aliens Love Underpants

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Review

Underpants are a source of humour whatever your reading age, even, it appears, when it comes to aliens!

Cort depicts some very attractive and friendly aliens in his illustrations, and some amazingly decorative underpants. Careful examination of the pictures reveals that these aliens are totally obsessed by underpants, with elaborate sculptural versions on plinths adorned by washing instructions.

One of the spreads shows the aliens dropping from spacecraft to safety net/pants, and the page is turned through a right angle, text and all, to do so.

Freedman's adventurously varied rhyming text introduces us to many different words for knickers, and an amazing collection of ways for aliens to wear them, and an excellent excuse for all those pairs which mysteriously go missing!
