Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Louise Rennison's ultra-hilarious snog teen is back in the fourth fabbity-fab book of her "even further confessions."

Since Georgia's been dating the yummy scrumboes Sex God, Robbie, her glossy lips are always at the ready, and her "red-bottomosity" is kept under wraps. Along with Naomi the Sex Kitten's new litter (thank you, Angus), Robbie's announcement that his band will be traveling to Hamburger-a-gogo land (Georgia can only hope to go with), and a class trip to France, Georgia is one camper in a state of teenage splendiosity. The small trouble is, Georgia also wonders if Dave the Laugh might still be the guy for her, and when Robbie gives a surprise-ending twist to his travel plans, she gets a "weird feeling of reliefosity" that makes her wonder if she must venture out and bravely use her "red bottom wisely."

Another first-rate entry in the diary tales of Georgia, Nuddy-Pants will keep fans panting for more. While Rennison hasn't provided any earth-shattering events in her heroine's life, this book shows Georgia's true nuddy-pants personality to be just as funny as ever. With plenty of juicy hints at what's to come, this laugh-out-loud read is one not to miss. Shana Taylor

Booklist
“The fourth entry into Georgia Nicolson’s diary is as loopy and laugh filled as ever.”
KLIATT
“The irrepressible Georgia is back, and that’s cause for celebration.”
VOYA
“This one will fly off the shelves.”
Booklist
“The fourth entry into Georgia Nicolson’s diary is as loopy and laugh filled as ever.”
Publishers Weekly
Just when Georgia thought she'd settled on Rob the Sex God rather than Dave the Laugh, Rob makes himself scarce and Dave breaks up with her friend Ellen, in this fourth confession in the series. Ages 12-up. (June) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This is the fourth book in the series of a young British teenage girl's diaries. Much of the story relates Georgia's infatuation with the SG (Sex God) and her fascination with her developing nunga-nungas (breasts). For those readers not familiar with the British slang that Georgia uses profusely, the dictionary at the back of the book will be helpful. For instance, in order to understand the title, one must know that "nuddy pants" are nude colored pants or, literally, no pants at all. So, dancing in nuddy pants means dancing nude. The writing is humorous, but Georgia is a self-centered character and, after awhile, becomes rather tiresome. On the other hand, judging from the popularity of Rennison's books, young teenage girls readily relate to Georgia and her problems and antics. 2002, Harper Tempest/Harper Collins,
— Kathy Egner
VOYA
With the return of Georgia and her confessions, awaiting readers will find her still dating the Sex-God Robbie while fancying Dave-the-Laugh at the same time, a situation with which many teens might identify. There are three main events that drive the plot: The girls take a school trip to Paris with the gorgey Mr. Henri, Robbie's band gets to tour in Scotland and the United States, and oversized cat Angus becomes a dad. There really is no more to tell. After finishing the book, one can come to the conclusion that, as with a Seinfeld episode, not much happens. The aforementioned events occur, but there are no real highs and lows within them. Georgia and her girlfriends pull the same kinds of stunts and go to the same kinds of parties as in the earlier titles, but this sameness should not bother Rennison fans at all. The author maintains the breezy, chatty style of the last three books and remains uncompromising about using British slang. A glossary in the back of the book employs Georgia's voice and is as tongue-in-cheek as the rest of the text. Most readers will not need it but will read through simply for fun. As did other titles, this one will fly off the shelves and leave the reader patiently waiting for more of Georgia's confessions.

KLIATT
The irrepressible Georgia is back, and that's cause for celebration for fans of her previous, hilarious titles, Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging, On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God, and Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas (the first two are reviewed in paperback in this issue). In diary form, Georgia brings us up to date on the doings of her friends and family, her school ("Stalag 14"), and her boyfriend, aka "the Sex God," though all they do is "snog" (kiss). She is however fighting an attraction to Dave the Laugh as well, while keeping busy playing pranks (such as releasing the biology class's locusts in the caretaker's shack), visiting Paris with her classmates, bravely snitching on a group of bullies at schools, being a hockey captain, and keeping her wildcat Angus from terrorizing the neighborhood even more than usual. Much of the fun here is in the telling, as Georgia creates her own vocabulary: the U.S. is "Hamburger-a-gogo land," for example. A funny glossary at the end helps Americans with the British slang. Georgia may lack "great dignosity," as she puts it, but she is always "fabbity fab fab" and unfailingly entertaining. Great silly fun, but you need to read the other titles first to fully appreciate this one. KLIATT Codes: JS*—Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2003, HarperCollins, 224p.,
— Paula Rohrlick
School Library Journal
Gr 7-9-Fans of this self-absorbed teen won't be disappointed in this latest installment of her journal, which contains more of the same humor and detailed observations of the minutiae of adolescent life found in the first three books. However, the teen's total "shallowosity" can be somewhat tiresome. By the fourth book, one might hope for growth of her character, along with her "nunga-nungas" (breasts). Plot-wise, this book picks up where the last one left off. Georgia is still in love with Robbie, the SG (sex god), but is increasingly confused by her feelings for Dave-the-Laugh. Temporary distractions include her cat Angus impregnating a feline across the road, a class trip to Paris, and being made captain of the hockey team. But-"sadnosity"-at novel's end, the SG is off to Kiwi-a-gogo land (New Zealand) to work on an ecological farm. Georgia will be left alone with Dave-the-Laugh. Clearly, further confessions are on the way.-Ronni Krasnow, New York Public Library Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The short review: more. The longer review: those who are familiar with Georgia Nicolson will likely not be filled with surprisosity to read this account of her "even further confessions." Georgia, still full of smugosity with her position as the girlfriend of Robbie the Sex God, nevertheless finds herself somewhat nonplussed at her continuing attraction to Dave the Laugh, he of the nip libbling incident from Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas (2002). In and around Georgia's agonizing over the big questions-"But what do you do with Sex Gods? Besides snog and worship them, I mean."-she assists (under duress) with the school production of Peter Pan, proudly watches as Naomi the sex kitten bears Angus's kittykats (conceived just before his neutering), goes to Frogland on a school trip, is named hockey captain, suffers through parental unrest, and busts the villainous Bummer sisters after they extort Nauseating P. Green into shoplifting. These events are narrated in Georgia's customarily breathless, insufferably self-interested, and undeniably chuckle-provoking style. Her overpowering voice results in the rather odd effect that for all that the plot is nominally jam-packed, the reader feels that very little is actually happening outside of her love life. Is Georgia filled with sadnosity when Robbie declares that he is moving to Kiwi-a-gogoland to work on an ecological farm ("I should have known when he turned up on his bike that something had gone horribly wrong")? Only temporarily; her customary high spirits take over: "Perhaps I could have Dave the Laugh as an unserious boyfriend . . . So I could have the Cosmic Horn for now. And I could save the Sex God for later!!" The line just before theglossary shouts that this is "The Official and Proper End. Probably." Let us hope so; original as Georgia's voice has been, formulosity threatens, and there's little new here. (Fiction. YA)

P.P.P.S. Some complete fool (my vati) says that in Hamburger-a-gogo land "fanny" means bottom. This can't possibly be true. Teeheeee heeee.

P.P.P.P.S. It is true, isn't it?

P.P.P.P.P.S. Do you know what "fanny" means in English?

P.P.P.P.P.P.S. I do; however it is a secret I will take with me to the grave. Possibly.

    I loved it!

    I'm a big fan of these books! They're hilarious! The only thing that bothered me was Georgia said Dave the Laugh was the reason she said poo parlor and piddly diddly department but I thought that was Ellen's brother... Sorry just kinda noticed it. lol Hopefully he's not Ellen's brother because that'd be incest.

    step back a little more Herr Kamyer...

    wow, this book was hilarious!!! although it wasn't my favorite book by Louise Rennison, it was great, especially with all the funny things that Libby did 'carrot twins', Paris, and the flirting w/ Dave the Laugh (General Horn). the stuff that happens to Georgia might not be what every teenager goes through but it's great to know how some people deal with things like over 20 bad conduct marks and losing the position of field hockey captain. yet overall, it was very enjoyable and funny. but it's too bad the Sex God's moving to Kiwi-a-go-go-land.

    A great book for teens!

    Dancing in my Nuddy Pants was a great book. I enjoyed spending my free time reading it. I would recommend it to all teenage girls, especially those in middle/junior high school. This was what I believe is one of the better Georgia Nicolson books. The only part about the book I did not like was that Georgia was very boy crazy and stuck in between guys. I prefer a more traditional story line, but there is almost nothing like a Georgia Nicolson book. I would definately read it again!

    Funniest one yet

    I loved this book best of the series, and it was the funniest book I've ever read, hands down. Libby is the best character ever written, and Georgia at her spastic best when she's with Dave. Forget Robbie, he's headed to Kiwi-a-go-go-land. Dave is a laugh, and they're perfect together!
