In THOSE ARE NOT MY UNDERPANTS! Bear Cub is curious about what's hanging on a branch. It's a pair of underpants! Whose could they be? Bear Cub walks through the forest asking the critters he meets to try to solve the mystery. From Kirkus Reviews: "The diversity of underpants on display will keep readers in stitches, and the animals' reactions to Bear Cub's inquiries about something so personal are both very funny and so true to life for kids." Booklist called it: "A solid contribution to that important children's book category, adorable animals wearing underwear, and many kiddos will be tickled to have another underpants book to chuckle over."
