PreS—Poor Polar Bear can't find his underwear, and so, with Mouse's help, he walks off in search of his missing undies. In the well-established pattern of "That's Not My…" books, the duo encounter a series of pages with die-cut underpants-shaped windows showing knickers of varying color schemes. Predictably, the undies always belong to some other animal. Each creature's skivvies reflect some characteristic of the owner. Zebra's underwear has colored stripes, Pig's has pictures of doughnuts and French fries, and Butterfly's are covered in flowers. Lively mixed-media collages illustrate the playful text. Young readers will delight in the visual gags; Squid wears a 10-legged pair of panties, and Bunny wears hers on her head. An eight-line song at the end of the book celebrates Polar Bear's underwear and asks readers, "Would you like to wear a pair, too?" VERDICT This silly import from Japan will quickly become a favorite with potty-training tots and fans of underwear humor.—Rachel Anne Mencke, St. Matthew's Parish School, Pacific Palisades, CA
"Many moments to giggle over."--Publishers Weekly
"'Polar Bear's Underwear' has it all - a guessing game on each page, a twist at the end, and, crucially, abundant opportunities to say underwear."--The Boston Globe
"What a great surprise ending!"--Imagination Soup

I went into the bedroom to see that my daughter had found our new copy of Polar Bear’s Underwear - and was cracking up.
Later, I read it with her and I could see why she was laughing so hard. This little book is hilarious.
Polar Bear has lost his underwear and his friend, Mouse, tries to help him find it. Page after page features hilarious underwear. It’s a cut out and you have to turn the next page to see who is wearing it. And, let me tell you, even when you know that on the next page is a cat or a bunny (based on the undies), they are always doing something funny. The bunny especially cracked me up!
Now, I’m not going to tell you where Polar Bear’s underwear is, but it’s a solution that completely amused the resident almost-seven-year old and delighted me.
Funny, clever, and an absolute hit!

The story is about Polar Bear and how he's lost his undies. Perplexed, he and his good friend Mouse begin a search.
What you get are big bright pages in sets. The first page of the set has Mouse and Polar Bear talking about whether what they spy on the next page could be PB's underwear. What children see is a page with a cut out and a bright 'mystery' pattern. One pattern, for example, has different kinds of food; while another has 'I Love Mice'. When you turn the page you get to see who it is.
I particularly like the itty-bitty cutout but kids will have their own favorites.
Besides the fun you can use this book to teach about patterns and to name animals like Pig, Mouse, Cat, Zebra....
A delightful and sturdy book made with thick paper.
Mouse spotted some underwear that had yum, yum treats all over it. Anyone for a donut? Could that possibly be Polar Bear’s underwear? No, it just happened to be “nom nom nom” Pig’s! There was a “itty-bitty pair” with little flowers, but maybe a bit too small. Could that posibly be Polar Bear’s underwear? No, it just happened to be Butterfly’s! Besides, it was a tad too small for Polar Bear. The search continued and they found all kinds of underwear, but not Polar Bear’s. Just what happened to his underwear and where could it be?
This is a totally charming, amusing tale of woe that little children will love. Polar Bear is a delightfully appealing character who is greatly distressed over the loss of his underwear. In his journey, along with Mouse, they find all kinds, just not his. We get a glimpse of all kinds of fancy underwear via a cutout on the opposite page. When little hands turn the page, we certainly know that they don’t belong to Polar Bear. Young children will certainly giggle as they find the perfect pair for Polar Bear.
