* "'Naked!' It’s fun to say and fun to be, as the team behind 2012’s I’m Bored proves with this tribute to the (temporarily) clothes-free life.... Certain to inspire gleeful mimicry—not that some kids need much of an excuse to ditch their duds." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
"Black and Ridpath Ohi follow up on their I’m Bored (S & S, 2012) with another humorous picture book that taps into children’s emotions.... Parents sharing this story one-on-one with a child will find the picture book humorous on both a child and adult level." (School Library Journal)
"Black, a comedian as well as a writer, brings great comic timing to this riff. Ohi, who worked with Black on 'I’m Bored', makes sure readers get the joke." (New York Times Book Review)

This book is just plain fun. It is a celebration of the joys of being"ME", of pure, innocent freedom and giving a shout out to the birthday suit! (which adults seem to want to cover up all the time!!)
Unwrapping it in rhyme...
The bubble bath was so much fun,
Might escape to take a run.
Bye, bye mom - you can't catch me,
I'm naked and I'm feeling free!
Ha! Ha! mom - the towel?, no thanks
Gonna go and grab my cape.
I'll fly around and be real cool,
I might go naked to my school.
Cookies taste best when you're bare,
No shirt, no pants, no underwear.
Look at me, I'm my own man
Did dad or you turn on a fan?
I'm feeling chilly, oh dear me
I need my jammies I can see.
I'll jump in bed and snuggle in
Get toasty warm up to my chin.
Naked time was such a blast
But now I see the time has passed.
Good night bare toes, goodnight bare bum...
Goodnight, goodnight to everyone!
The story is so kid-perfect and the illustrations bring the words to life. Every time I read the book I laugh out loud at this little guy's free spirit flowing with happiness and adventure as he moves throughout his world NAKED. I would highly recommend this book for a great bedtime story. Warning: Read after the bath...when dressed in the pyjamas...and tucked safely into bed. Then there will be no fear of a copy-cat rendezvous au naturel. Yep, it's a winner.
