Aliens Love Underpants (Boxset)

Claire Freedman and Ben Cort
Aliens Love Underpants
‘When aliens fly down to Earth,
They don’t come to meet YOU…
They simply want your underpants
I’ll bet you never knew!
Dinosaurs Love Underpants
‘Dinosaurs were all wiped out,a long way back in history.
No one knows quite how or why,
Now this book solves the mystery…
Aliens in Underpants Save the World
‘Aliens love underpants,
It’s lucky that they do,
For pants helped save our universe.
Sounds crazy but its true!

These three board books, presented as a boxed set were a birthday present to my now 3 year old last month. To say we pretty much know them off by heart now is an understatement!
The books are wonderfully chunky, around A5 sized and pretty toddler proof. Each book is told in rhyme as seen above which makes them very readable and appealing for little ones, and they are, quite simply, hilarious! Hat’s off to Claire Freedman and Ben Cort for these wonderful stories about Aliens, Dinosaurs, and their mutual love of underpants!
Joshua giggles away and enjoys pointing out all the hilarious things he sees on the pages, for example, Dinosaurs wearing lots of underpants on their legs, on their heads, on their horn’s etc and trying to rip them off of each other in a huge fight over underpants (that’s how dinosaurs were wiped out, in case you didn’t know!). These books I’m sure will also appeal to slightly older boys too, who will love all the underpants talk!
The illustrations are just lovely, also funny and bright and Joshua asks for these books to be read at most bedtimes currently.
Verdict: A great addition to the preschooler’s bookshelf. A really funny and enjoyable set of book
