Holiday Gift Guide: 50 Underwear Questions by Tanya lloyd Kyi, illustrated by Ross Kinnaird

It’s difficult to imagine the child who wouldn’t be tickled by the slightly risque nature and spirited delivery of 50 Underwear Questions: A Bare-All History (Annick). What’s Under a Sari? What is a knickerbocker? What kind of underpants should a superhero wear? And maybe the most fun of all: what might future underwear look like?

50 Underwear Questions is more than just whimsical questions and answers, too. There are underwear facts and histories; underwear jokes and even underwear technologies, all covering the topic in more depth than you might think the subject would warrant.

The book is illustrated by Ross Kinnaird who also illustrated two earlier books in the series for Annick Press, both all by Lloyd Kyi: 50 Burning Questions and 50 Poisonous Questions.

Suggested for ages nine-plus, but the tone is sufficiently brisk and the material so fun and different, most anyone will enjoy this one. ◊
