A hilarious picture book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jory John, paired with new illustrator Erin Kraan, about a bear whose friends help him make it through a bad day!
"The underpinnings of this charming picture book are already strong (underwear is inherently funny), and the babbling small talk Jeff engages in while trying to figure out what's wrong adds a lot to the increasingly silly situation ('Am I right or am I right? I think I'm right'). John's text perfectly pitches the jokes to a strong conclusion at just the right pace while Kraan's energetic illustrations, with hardly a straight line in the entire book, add to the sense of ultimately harmless cringe. The book is also a clever primer on handling embarrassment and how it can sometimes be dealt with by simply changing the perspective of what's happening. . .This underwear affair is wise, witty, and just brief enough." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
