Top Customer Reviews
This wonderfully creative book stands apart from other books about jobs not only because the ideas are completely communicated through verse, but also because the art work embraces the poetry in an entirely different way on every page. The Underwear Salesman gets high marks for using humor and rich artistic content to tell children about some of the jobs that may await them in the future.
