Vegetables in Underwear by Jared Chapman


This book does what is says on the tin. But these aren’t mushy peas — these vegetables are fresh — strutting their way across the page in their skivvies without a care in the world. If you are in the process of potty training a child (or have a husband predisposed to the enjoyment of all things unterpanten) this is the book for you. Oh, the giggles.

What does an ear of corn say when he’s embarrassed? “Aw, shucks”. That may be true, but you will get no apologies from these guys. I could go on (I’ve got a million of ’em) but instead, I will let you savour Jared Chapman’s delightful illustrations (sorry, I couldn’t resist).
