Annotation: What's a pair of empty green trousers doing standing by itself in the woods? Or riding a bike in Grin-itch? Or fishing on Roover River? The narrator certainly doesn't want to find out but wherever he goes, he's haunted by the spooky empty pants. Finally, when the two find themselves hiding from each other in a Snide bush the terrified narrator realizes, "I was just as strange to him as he was strange to me." This little Seussian gem, plucked from the back of "The Sneetches and Other Stories," shines on it own as it delivers a timeless message about fear and tolerance.

Contributor Bio(s): Theodor Seuss Geisel—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into 30 languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck; the Pulitzer Prize; and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Spring)
An allegory about confronting fears, this silly, faux-spooky story features a pair of pants "with nobody inside them." Originally published in The Sneetches and Other Stories, this version stars a glow-in-the-dark narrator (and pants). Given that the tale can't be read without light and the pictures need a few minutes under a bulb to glow (barely), it's an odd marketing ploy. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
