From the celebrated team behind <i>Creepy Carrots!</i>, Aaron Reynolds and Caldecott Honor winner Peter Brown, comes a hilarious (and just a little creepy) story of a brave rabbit and a very weird pair of underwear. <p/>Jasper Rabbit is NOT a little bunny anymore. He’s not afraid of the dark, and he’s definitely not afraid of something as silly as <i>underwear</i>. But when the lights go out, suddenly his new big rabbit underwear glows in the dark. A ghoulish, greenish glow. If Jasper didn’t know any better he’d say his undies were a little, well, <i>creepy</i>. Jasper’s not scared obviously, he’s just done with creepy underwear. But after trying everything to get rid of them, they keep coming back!
It’s a totally zany story with some of the silliest illustrations to appear in many seasons–which is to say that Aliens Love Underpants will be a surefire hit among toddlers and beginning readers. When little aliens fly down to Earth, they don’t come to visit because they want to meet the Earthlings. They simply want to steal everybody’s underpants! They like them large or small, they like them red or green–and they like them in all other sizes and colors, too. They think that Mom’s pink, frilly panties are a perfect place to hide. And Grandpa’s woolly long johns make a super-whizzy slide! The text is in verse, the illustrations are big and bright, and kids who open this book will giggle from first page to last.
Bare bear! Stop right there! Underwear! Under where? So begins the dialogue between a tired bear dad and a rambunctious bear cub who would rather play with his tighty whities than get into bed.

Rhymes, homonyms, and conjunctions abound in this book that could be used to teach reading, but its primary purpose is to make bedtime fun.
