A funny picture book about Pod, a boy with a cold bottom! Will stone underpants suit him, or does he need to be more inventive?
“I really do need something to keep my bottom warm,” Pod told his Dad. “You could make something,” Dad said. “Stone is very handy.”
Pod has a problem. His bottom is bare and there’s a cold wind blowing! Dad suggests he makes some stone underpants but they’re no good. Pod can’t run, kick or bend with stone underpants holding him back. Pod tries different materials to warm his bottom, each with their own draw backs. Will he ever make pants that are comfy and warm?
Praise for Stone Underpants
“[I]t is Pod’s persistence to engage in trial and error, even in the face of multiple failures, that turns this book from mere Stone Age silliness into a lesson of tackling a problem from multiple angles.”—Kirkus Reviews
Ideal for 4 – 7 year olds, Stone Underpants is a delightfully fun read. Children can learn from Pod’s resilience and can-do attitude.
