Description

Small children (and lots of adults!) love pants. They love talking about pants. They giggle whenever pants are mentioned. Let's face it - pants are very funny! So who better than Lenny Henry, king of comedy, to read this bestselling picture book? But he doesn't just read it, he sings it - five times! Children will love the folk, rap, reggae, disco and rock 'n' roll versions of "Pants" and they will ask to hear them again and again.show more
