Children's Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD)

PANTemonium is a silly, rhyming, story about a man named Fred who decides to go fishing one day and without knowing it, catches his favorite underwear on the end of his hook! As he walks along the road to his favorite fishing spot, his underwear scoops up what he passes by. As his walk goes on the items get more and more far-fetched. Eventually he has most of the town, people, and even zoo animals riding along inside of his stretchy, polka-dotted underwear! When he finally arrives at his favorite fishing spot all of the things he’s caught along his walk go free and he wonders how all of these things got to the beach. He casts his trusty fishing pole and into the water goes his underwear for one final catch! A Whale! Kids will love this silly, carefree book mostly because it’s about underwear. Parents and teachers will enjoy the easy flow of the story, thanks to the rhyming. Reviewer Rating: 5” –Children’s Literature
