  • Just a’struttin’ and a’prancin’ and bedecked to beat the band in heart-spattered drawers comes Bismark the Buffalo—but only after a remarkable metamorphosis…Munsinger’s zany pen-and-ink perky-colored illustrations are a perfect foil for the text…A great read-aloud choice.

    - Booklist

  • Her animals are full of frolic-some fun, and the variety of underwear is appropriately zany. Children will be unable to resist Zachary and Orfo as they cavort in the trees with underwear donned as hats and numerous pairs trailing from their limbs. Sheer frivolous fun.

    - School Library Journal

  • An idea with a built-in kid-appeal: tell a story about underwear and bring in an artist to add lots of funny touches to each pair of boxer shorts…more fun is the part when grassland animals Orfo the Orangutan and Zachary the Zebra attend the “World’s Greatest Grassland Underwear Fair” and stock up on their favorite styles. And best of all are Munsinger’s pictures of them wearing all those bright and witty styles at once.
