Product Description

From Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Brown wrote this "For all the kids who insisted on an underwear book." Arthur aficionados will chortle at each picture of boxers and briefs. They'll also empathize with the young aardvark's recurring dreams about public humiliation that inevitably become reality the day his pants rip in the cafeteria. The cook helps him through the ordeal and his nightmares finally disappear. However, Buster, who revealed his best friend's secret fears to their classmates, succumbs to similar dreams at the end. Brown's illustrations remain faithful to the series. There's nothing groundbreaking here, but it's still enjoyable in its familiarity.

From Booklist

Dedicated to "all the kids who insisted on an underwear book," this latest installment in the popular Arthur series is adapted from a PBS teleplay. When Binky bends over to pick up a piece of chalk, "a loud RRRIPPP!" reveals red polka-dot underwear. Arthur finds the situation hilariously funny, until he starts dreaming about being caught in his own white briefs. Arthur's friend Buster dispenses advice, but things come to a head when Buster informs other kids about Arthur's apprehension. Embarrassed that his secret is out, Arthur rushes to escape the cafeteria, ripping his jeans and realizing his worst fear. Ironically, the incident ends up curing him. Fans will appreciate the humor in this bright title with its familiar cartoonlike illustrations, but a few kids might relate to the story with embarrassed giggles of their own.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible artwork Oct. 24 2001
By A Customer
very disappointed in this book. The art work is hideous. The cover shows a modern looking Arthur, but the illustrations show Arthur and his family looking more like rats than bears. My kid didn't even recognize Arthur. He kept saying "That's not Arthur".
If they redid the illustrations inside the book (as they did the cover), I would give it a much better rating. But the story is very mediocre, and the horrid artwork has made me regret purchasing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Artur's Underwear" Jan. 26 2001
How funny! Younger kids will probably like this book because of, of course, UNDERWEAR! I am just a crazy Arthur fan! I have this book in Hardcover. It rules, you will think so, most definetely, too. I'm sure it will be A FAVORIRE IN YOUR child's collection. Great book, so get it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yikes! Where's My--- May 22 2001
Arthur rolls on, this time--it appears--pant-less.
Arthur remains, deservedly so, a hit with kids. All of the Arthur books are worth owning, because they're fun for kids and parents will not be dulled to sleep when they read them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story for those 3-5 year olds! April 3 2000
By A Customer
This is a typical Arthur the Aardvark story with a lesson to be learned in a fun way. It is the perfect book for the 3-5 year old who is in the stage of talking about underwear (as they all seem to do at some point!).
