A hilarious new book about a boy who refuses to wear clothes, from comedian Michael Ian Black and illustrator Debbi Ridpath Ohi, the team that brought you I’m Bored, a New York Times Notable Children’s Book.

Michael Ian Black and Debbie Ridpath Ohi, whose “smart cartoony artwork matches Black’s perfect comic timing” (The New York Times Book Review), have paired up again to showcase the antics of an adorable little boy who just doesn’t want to get dressed.

After his bath, the little boy begins his hilarious dash around the house…in the buff! Being naked is great. Running around, sliding down the stairs, eating cookies. Nothing could be better. Unless he had a cape…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Birthday suit bliss! Yep.... he's unwrapped... nude... au naturel and ready to streak!! This book is just plain fun. It is a celebration of the joys of being"ME", of pure, innocent freedom and giving a shout out to the birthday suit! (which adults seem to want to cover up all the time!!) Unwrapping it in rhyme... The bubble bath was so much fun, Might escape to take a run. Bye, bye mom - you can't catch me, I'm naked and I'm feeling free! Ha! Ha! mom - the towel?, no thanks Gonna go and grab my cape. I'll fly around and be real cool, I might go naked to my school. Cookies taste best when you're bare, No shirt, no pants, no underwear. Look at me, I'm my own man Did dad or you turn on a fan? I'm feeling chilly, oh dear me I need my jammies I can see. I'll jump in bed and snuggle in Get toasty warm up to my chin. Naked time was such a blast But now I see the time has passed. Good night bare toes, goodnight bare bum... Goodnight, goodnight to everyone! The story is so kid-perfect and the illustrations bring the words to life. Every time I read the book I laugh out loud at this little guy's free spirit flowing with happiness and adventure as he moves throughout his world NAKED. I would highly recommend this book for a great bedtime story. Warning: Read after the bath...when dressed in the pyjamas...and tucked safely into bed. Then there will be no fear of a copy-cat rendezvous au naturel. Yep, it's a winner.

Editorial Reviews

"Black, a comedian as well as a writer, brings great comic timing to this riff. Ohi, who worked with Black on 'I’m Bored', makes sure readers get the joke."
