Underpants Thunderpants!

Underpants Thunderpants!

by Peter Bently Illustrated by Deborah Melmon

All it takes is a gust of wind from a thunderstorm to send a clothesline full of Dog's boxers and briefs flying through the air…and around the world! One pair sinks to the bottom of the ocean and ends up on an octopus, another decorates a pirate's hat, and one pair even gets baked in a pie for a king. But the final wearer of these well-traveled underpants is an out-of-this-world surprise!

With bold, dynamic pictures and punchy poetry, this book is a great choice for rambunctious read-alouds!
