Bear in Long Underwear

Todd H. Doodler. Blue Apple (Random, dist.), $12.99 (36p) ISBN 978-1-60905-100-6

Bear and his bug-eyed animal friends bundle up on a snowy day and head outside to play. When they build a snowman, Bear contributes all of his clothing to the cause—except his red long underwear. His friends’ declarations of approval appear in dialogue balloons: “You look super cool!” says Beaver. Luckily, there’s a pair of long underwear for everyone; including the snowman. Toddlers should continue to find Doodler’s lovably dim cartoon animals and deadpan humor—and, of course, the underwear theme—irresistible. Ages 4–up. (Nov.)
