In Your Pants

Inspired by John Green's In Your Pants post on my new favorite blog Brotherhood 2.0 (after viewing, please be sure to view the accompanying musical adaptation of that old chestnut Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone From Your Pants), The Brookeshelf decided to take this infinitely immature and, let's face it, guffawable game and apply it to children's literature. The results have been pouring in.

My favorite suggestions thus far include . . .

Nancy's suggestions -
From Louisa May Alcott: An Old-Fashioned Girl in Your Pants
From Louis Sachar: Holes in Your Pants
From Linda Sue Park: A Single Shard In Your Pants.

Elaine Magliaro's suggestions -
From James Marshall: Miss Nelson Is Back in Your Pants
From Keiko Kasza: My Lucky Day in Your Pants
From Jack Prelutsky: The Beauty of the Beast in Your Pants

Yes, this whole "In your pants" brings out my sophomoric genes.

Did anyone mention

Guffawing is one of my favorite pastimes. Immature? Sophomoric? Moi? I plead guilty!

And just because I like your blog and poetry so much, Fuse, here are a few "in your pants" titles just for you:

From Jack Prelutsky: The Baby Uggs Are Hatching in Your Pants

From Marilyn Singer: It's Hard to Read a Map with a Beagle on Your Lap in Your Pants

From Eve Merriam: A Poem for a Pickle in Your Pants

From J. Patrick Lewis: A Hippopotamusn't in Your Pants

For me...this is like chocolate and my husband's homemade pizza--addictive!

This reminds me of my mom's habit of appending the words "in bed" to the end of everyone's fortune cookie message.

Fortune: "You will achieve your fondest goal..."

My mother: "...In bed! Ha ha!"

Thanks for posting a couple of mine Fuse! (I even got credit for another Nancy's suggestion)

William Steig's When Everybody Wore a Hat in Your Pants

E. Nesbit's Five Children and It in Your Pants

(from me, a children's bookseller)

And because this coffee table book (sadly not a kids' book) happened to be randomly sitting on our coffee table,
Estelle Ellis, et al, At Home with Books in Your Pants

(from my boyfriend, a very apologetic children's librarian)

Fred Rogers's When a Pet Dies in Your Pants
