Farmer's underpants will never be the same when Kitty and her funny and wacky barnyard pals squeeze into their new "coat" and prance around the farm.

Tammi Sauer's The Underpants is a hilarious and irreverent homage to Jan Brett's The Mitten, in which Kitty discovers a "coat" in a farmer's fresh laundry pile. Hysterical hijinks ensue as Dog, Pig, Rooster, Cow, and Bird want to share the "coat." Joren Cull's illustrations add loads of laughter as the underpants "coat" gets more and more crowded and our five barnyard pals prance around the farmyard.

Readers of all ages will laugh out loud on this underwear adventure!

"Riotous . . . the participants seem deeply satisfied by this unadulterated silliness — and readers should be, too." — Publishers Weekly
