Vegetables in Underwear

A bunch of friendly vegetables wear colourful underwear of all varieties—big, small, clean, dirty, serious, and funny—demonstrating for young ones the silliness and necessity of this item of clothing.

The unexpectedness of vegetables in their unmentionables is enough to draw giggles, but the pride with which the “big kid” attire is flaunted in front of the baby carrots in nappies will tickle readers of all ages. With rhyming text that begs to be chanted aloud and art that looks good enough to eat, this vibrant story will encourage preschoolers to celebrate having left those nappies behind!


About the Author(s)
Jared Chapman

Jared Chapman was born in Louisiana, grew up in Texas, went to college in Georgia, lived in Austin, and now calls the piney woods of northeast Texas his home. He and his young brood prefer silly underwear to serious, and broccoli to celery.


"Jared Chapman has created this fantastic piece, which is not only humorous and inventive but accessible to those littlins experiencing the growth from nappies to pants and, also, starting to tackle written language."Anne Hass, Treasures of Picture Books Blog.
