Creepy Pair of Underwear!
This book is very funny! It talks about creepy stuff and underwear stuff, and those two are my absolute favorite topics. Jasper, a bunny, asks his mom to buy a pair of glowing green underwear. They are creepy, with creepy eyes and a creepy mouth as well. Mom brings a pair home, and Jasper wears it to bed all proud when he realizes that the underwear are glowing in the darkness. That’s really creepy, and he can’t sleep, so he starts thinking of ways to get rid of them. At first he sticks them in the laundry hamper. The next day, he wakes up wearing them! That’s really creepy. When he puts them in the trash…he finds them back in the dresser. Even when he shreds them with Mom’s scissors, they are back in the bathroom. Then he thinks of shipping them away to China. This is the funniest part of the book, because they come back, with chopsticks!!!! So he gets on his bike and takes them far, far away, digs a hole, and the underwear can’t come back this time. Maybe the only thing they can’t do is dig themselves up!
