Aliens Love Underpants! by Claire Freedman

Lovereading view...

Joint winner of the Richard and Judy "Early" 5+ Category. Terrific illustrations capture the flood of jokes about pants that underlie this rhyming story. There are no underpants in space so the Aliens have to come down to earth to find them on people’s washing lines. Aliens love their different shapes, sizes and colours, in fact, they seem to have an unusual attraction to pants of all kinds. Find out all the things they love about them in this easy to read story. If you like this then be sure to check out the brilliant Dinosaurs Love Underpants by the same author.


Aliens Love Underpants! by Claire Freedman

"Aliens love underpants, in every shape and size,

But there are no underpants in space, so here's a big surprise...."

You probably thought aliens came down to Earth with a view to taking over the planet - but,
no, they simply want to steal your pants!

This zany, hilarious tale, delightfully brought to life by Ben Cort's vibrant illustrations, is
sure to enchant and amuse the whole family. With a madcap, rhyming text, perfect for
joining in, this story is fantastically fresh and funny - you'll laugh your pants off!
