Bear asks each of his gang of friends if they wear underwear. Each shows off his or her particular pair--purple boxers for Turtle, a striped pair for Cougar, pink for Hedgie, etc.--except for Fishy, who declares that of course he doesn't wear underwear (what with being a fish and all). But Bear, of course, does and declares his favorite to be his signature tighty-whities. In addition to being good old silly fun, share this book with kids who are just transitioning from diapers and pull-ups to big kid underpants, for a little nutty encouragement.
Todd "Doodler" Goldman is a cartoonist, pop-artist, and the creator of this wonderfully kid-friendly series. When an initial career as an accountant proved unsatisfying, he launched the hugely successful art merchandising company David & Goliath in 2000. He began illustrating and writing children's books in 2009. The author lives in Los Angeles, California.
