Book Review: Aliens Love Underpants

Aliens Love Underpants
Author: Claire Freedman, Illustrated by Ben Cort
Simon & Schuster, Paperback, US

"Aliens love underpants, in every shape and size, But there are no underpants in space, so here's a big surprise..." You probably thought aliens came down to Earth with a view to taking over the planet - but, no, they simply want to steal your pants! This zany, hilarious tale, delightfully brought to life by Ben Cort's vibrant illustrations, is sure to enchant and amuse the whole family. With a madcap, rhyming text, perfect for joining in, this story is fantastically fresh and funny - you'll laugh your pants off!

A delightful rhyming story with bright and fun illustrations.  It is a little more wordy than the last few books I've written about but all 3 stay engaged with and enjoy this story.  Ideal median age would probably be 3.  It's bright, fun and funky.  What's not to love? 

Happy reading.


  1. Fun! I saw your review and realised we had this book in our cupboard, so the girls enjoyed a few times through. It is bright and fun!

  2. I do love this book, I love rhyming books and this is such a boy book, my boys are in giggles when we read it. I agree 3 is a good age for them to fully appreciate it. There is a sequel to this about Christmas which is now part of our bring it out at Christmas collection.


Thanks for stopping by - it brightens my day!
