Dad's getting mad but Bear doesn't care because he's making jokes about underwear! Read it in your secret lair, sitting on your favorite chair, maybe even buy a pair. You just can't beat UNDERWEAR! — Angela (RBB Staff)— From Underwear!
Bare bear! Stop right there! Underwear!
So begins the dialogue between a tired bear dad and a rambunctious bear cub who would rather play with his tighty whities than get into bed. Underwear makes great hair. It can even turn one into a superber, or a goggle-wearing swimming bear. But beware of a big scare! Rhymes, homonyms, and conjunctions abound in this book that could be used to teach reading, but its primary purpose is to make bedtime fun.

*"The cub's unbridled enthusiasm and vibrant imagination will keep kids in stitches . . . Facial features and body language are spot-on, and the rollicking rhymes are the icing on the cake. This will be a riotous hit wherever it's shared . . ."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
