Bare Bear: Bear in Underwear by Todd H Doodler

Bear is hiding, but his friends are not seeking--at least no one comes to find him. Bear's mind turns to dinner, and with visions of ice cream and hot dogs in his head, his jog home is interrupted when he trips over a nice backpack on the trail. With food on his mind, Bear just picks it up and carries it along home, where it seems all his friends are waiting for him.


Cautiously, Bear opens the pack and pulls out---UNDERWEAR! All kinds--bloomers, boxers, briefs, in dots, stripes, blue and pink, big and snug. At the urging of his friends, Bear begins to try them on. Some are baggy, some are silly, and one pair is so tight that Bear's eyes begin to bulge! and finally hits upon a svelte pair of tightey-whiteys just his style. His buddies are pleased.


Todd Doodler's new Bear In Underwear (Blue Apple Books, 2010) is a real rib-tickler for kids of the age that finds the very word "underwear" hilarious. The clever cover, with Bear in real fabric tightey-whiteys, is sure to get this one going, and the funny remarks (done in snappy speech balloons) by his animal friends as the style show progresses and the giggle-provoking drawings of Bear in the wardrobe of underwear styles will keep the laughs coming all the way to the end.

Other undie-lit choices are Doodler's companion piece, Bear in Pink Underwear, and those other lingerie-lit favorites, Aliens Love Underpants, Dinosaurs Love Underpants, and Aliens in Underpants Save the World.

  • Sounds like the perfect book to tickle a young one's funny bone. Is the author real last name really Doodler!? How ironic!!!

  • It does sound like a nom de plume, doesn't it?
