Overview
Count and share with...underwear Come along on a zany adventure with hilarious pictures from the New York Times bestselling illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site.

What's one thing that two bears, three yaks, four goats, and six cats have in common?

They hate to share.

But look out--here comes a pack of twenty pigs ready to prove that sharing makes everything twice as fun

This seriously silly picture book with artwork by the New York Times bestselling illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site irresistibly combines the concepts of counting and sharing.

Though nominally about underwear, always an attention getter, Gehl’s debut offers lessons in counting and cooperation. In each example, the number of desirable items (“FIVE flat mats”) is too few for the animals that want them (“SIX fat cats”), and one leaves disappointed (“One fat cat thinks, Rats! Rats! Rats!”). Absurdity reigns. Five goats cannot apportion four jars of candy, nine ducks have only eight hockey sticks, and the underwear of the title is coveted by “TWO brown bears who hate to share.” At last, 20 pigs demonstrate, albeit dangerously, that they all can use 10 playground slides at the same time, and the rest of the animals pool their resources too: “Goats and ducks share candy bars,/ hockey fun, and empty jars.” Gehl’s tongue-twisting rhymes bounce along winningly, and Lichtenheld (This Is a Moose) gamely pictures the silly activities, from water-skiing cows and scooter-riding seals to twin bears stuffed into a single pair of Y-fronts. This amusing tale of sharing eschews the preachy and relies on nonsense to get readers giggling. Ages 4–8. Illustrator’s agent: Amy Rennert, Amy Rennert Agency. (Sept.)
