underwear, inquiring minds want to know...  

Crinolines to bloomers, long johns to corsets, and stockings to breech cloths: all one would want to know about the evolution of underwear is in this engaging picture book. Included is a chronology and some suggestions for further reading. Look for this one from Holiday House in September 2008.

This is a complete rip-off of Deborah Nourse Lattimore's 1998 lift-the-flap picture book for children, "I Wonder What's Under There: A Brief History of Underwear"! If only hers wasn't out of print, I'd say Boycott this! and buy Deb's instead. But alas.

acutally, it is a picture book with lots of text. so, I do not think it is that similar to the other books I have seen on the subject (and I think this is the 3rd book on underwear I have read this year).
