Product Details

Praise

The central joke in Fearing’s simple text will tickle toddlers as will the digitally created, bright, cartoon illustrations of the ginger-haired white giant failing miserably to protect his dignity while he acts like a toddler himself. A scenery-chewing performance will be a hit at giant- and underwear-themed storytimes and anywhere fine undies are appreciated.
—Kirkus Reviews

Illustrating in bold and brassy digital cartoons, Fearing (The Great Thanksgiving Escape) gives readers lots to laugh about, including Belbum’s friends’ unhelpful suggestions (“I don’t wear pants. You could try that,” offers Lucy the unicorn), the ways those friends make use of his spare pants (the gnomes turn them into a canopy for a picnic spot), and the contrast between the giant’s crankiness and sheepishness.
—Publishers Weekly

Children (not to mention certain parents) will laugh to see the carrot-topped behemoth lumbering about the countryside on hairy legs, and should also get Fearing’s tongue-in-cheek point.
—Booklist Online

Large trim size and bold colors and line work suit the story line, and the details in the digital art ramp up the humor and character development while creating atmosphere with amusing fairy-tale tropes throughout. A yellowed and tattered map on the endpapers charts the giant’s trek for his trousers.
—The Horn Book
