Animals in Pants

Cameron Kids. Apr. 2023. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781951836627.
K-Gr 2–A variety of audacious animals in all kinds of pants pirouette, slither, bend, leap, and strut while wearing pressed pantaloons, dungarees, button-fly flares, leggings, jeggings, unitards, and slacks. The sooner readers turn the pages of this delightfully humorous poetry book, the longer everyone gets to groove! Levinson’s debut picture book of 23 entertaining and clever poems pulls readers into a parade of impeccable nonsense in which the husband-and-wife illustration team present flamboyant images of cats, raccoons, groundhogs, monkeys, and kangaroos. While they listen to the crisp, concise rhyming verse, children’s eyes will be darting across each energetic spread to soak up the movements of animals as they display their finery of perky pants.
VERDICT Every library shelf should have this poetry book of animals wearing pants, which is a triumph of rhythmic language, vibrant visuals, and hilarious laugh-out-loud illustrations. It’s sure to please any reader.
