Have you ever seen a banana in a bikini? Or a tangerine in trunks? What about grapes in goggles? In this uproarious follow-up to Vegetables in Underwear, kids will learn that there are many kinds of suits—including suits for swimming, surfing, sunbathing, and scuba diving. But can you wear a business suit to the beach? Fruits in Suits has the same irreverent silliness as Vegetables in Underwear and shows just how much fun swimsuits can be—and how important it is to hold on to them when you jump into the water!

About the Author

Jared Chapman was born in Louisiana, grew up in Texas, went to college in Georgia, lived in Austin, and now calls the piney woods of northeast Texas his home. He and his young brood prefer silly underwear to serious, and broccoli to celery.

Praise For Fruits in Suits

"A delicious assortment of anthropomorphic fruit is decked out in a variety of stylish bathing suits... The minimal text, consisting mostly of quick descriptions of the fruits’ attire, utilizes a limited vocabulary digestible for beginning readers. Meanwhile, the crisp, brightly colored digital cartoon renderings of the fruit and their swimming accoutrements—all set against a stark white background—make this fashion show a delightful feast for the eyes."

— Booklist

"Humorous illustrations of swimming, sunning, and surfing fruits... A delightful choice for a giggle-filled preschool storytime in season or anytime."
