Publisher's Summary

"As soon as Fred gets out of bed, his underwear goes on his head. His mother laughs, 'Don't put it there, a head's no place for underwear!' But near his ears, above his brains, is where Fred's underwear remains." "I am digging a hole in the ceiling in order to gaze at the sky, I began at the end of September, I intend to be done by July."


What the Critics Say

"Fans of the earlier volumes will rejoice in finding more of the same....frivolous, rib-tickling verses". (Publishers Weekly)
