so, it's cute, but a strongly object to the "message". The same things don't make everyone happy. Forcing your friends into underpants is probably wrong. Getting rid of your bugs is not always a bad thing. ( )

zebra, egret, and monkey all love wearing underwear, here, there, everywhere, but buffalo doesn't. he doesn't want to have any fun, so zebra egret and monkey trick him into having fun and eventually he wants to wear underwear.

This is an utterly charming kid's book about underwear. This story is based on how hilarious small kid's find underwear to be, and keeps on going. The illustrations are silly and the text matches really well. A great book to read aloud with silly voices. ( )
