"Animals, animals- everywhere-- / from A to Z in their underwear!" So begins this march through the alphabet with a bevy of animals sporting various undergarments. On each page or under a flap, an alligator wears striped drawers, a bat flies with multicolored undies, a chicken dons pink-and-purple panties and so on, with a colorful block letter and a simple label floating nearby. Many of the usual alphabet-book critters are here, such as Elephant, Frog and Goldfish, but there are a couple of surprises, particularly Nanny goat for N. As the letters get more challenging, things grow progressively sillier, ushering in an extra-large pig in heart-decked briefs, a purple yak in blue, yellow, green and red underwear, and a multicolored zebra with no underwear at all. Parr's signature cartoons using bold colors, thick black lines and childlike forms will be easily recognizable to his fans. The use of flaps here mainly seems to be a space-saving device to compress multiple letters into a spread, since they do not offer any surprises or changes on the inside, as is typical in other lift-the-flap titles. Like the animals' knickers, there's not much to this one-joke offering. (Board book. 2-4)

Reviewed by Darin Godby for Readers' Favorite Author Todd Parr writes a very entertaining and enjoyable children's book in Animals in Underwear ABC. He takes each letter of the alphabet and places it with an animal that begins with that letter and shows them in their underwear. The pages are split where the reader has to open the page after turning to the next page to reveal even more letters and funny animals. Each lift of the page reveals a very cute animal and the next letter of the alphabet. This book builds interest and excitement with each turning of a page. There are lots of fun colors and interesting artwork on each page. Young readers will enjoy a soft-bound cover, easy to hold, light and kid friendly. This book is perfect for young children whose parents are trying to expose them to their ABC's. Author Parr makes this a rewarding book to read because young readers will find themselves turning from page to page to find what interesting and unique animal is on the other side. This is a fine book to give to parents as well as libraries to carry for their patrons so they could check out this unique educational tool for children. This book will help children be entertained and enjoy the learning process. This will be a wonderful educational tool to use and, with the colorful pictures, parents could even help their child learn colors as well.
