A strong gust of wind sweeps Doctor Grundy's best undies—brand-new, and decorated with tiger stripes and tiger eyes off the clothesline. The unusual undergarments go flapping out to sea and across many different lands. Who will get to keep them? A cracked crew of pirates? A silly Scottish bagpiper? You'll find out in this fun-filled and irreverent world tour. The adventure is XXL, just like the fabulous undies, and loaded with clever rhymes and winsome pictures by the bestselling team of storyteller Dawn McMillan and illustrator Ross Kinnaird, the cheeky creators of I Need A New Butt!

"I do declare, new underwear!" said Pirate Captain Hook. "Yo ho ho! Way to go! I love this boxer look!"
The captain washed the undies and hung them out to dry. The wind blew, the wind blew ... and the undies fluttered high.(Continues…)
