Broccoli wears red briefs and eggplant wears green. The chubby potato's underwear is just too small. As every parent knows, children find the word "underwear" to be extremely funny, and the produce section wearing Jared Chapman-styled underwear is guaranteed to please.

With each single, boldly colored vegetable in his/her underwear centered on a white background, very young children can easily follow the simple text; the endpapers show the named vegetables fully clothed. The juxtaposition of vegetables with underwear is so ludicrous, that this eight-inch square book, easy for small hands to hold, is destined for fun and many repeat readings.
